ABOUT THE FRIENDS
The Friends of the Del Mar Library is an all-volunteer organization created to support and enhance the Del Mar Library. Through donations, memberships, grants and book sales, we help fund new books, magazine and newspaper subscriptions, and a wide range of adult, teen and children's programs.
It is the Friends mission to help the branch be responsive to the needs of the community, support the San Diego County Library system in implementing its programs, and maintain an association of persons interested in promoting literacy.
The Friends-sponsored adult, teen and children's programs include Toddler Story Times, Summer Reading Challenge, Bluegrass concerts, Yoga, Bridge, and much more. In-person events are back on a limited basis.
One of our favorite activities is buying new books for the Del Mar Library through the Friends Express program. We received our first books in 18 months a couple weeks ago! Our Book Committee meets monthly to pick our new titles.
Since 1982, the Friends have been an essential part of the Del Mar Library. Read about the journey to raise awareness and funds to purchase the Craftsman-era building to create a library that is the pride of the Del Mar community.
