Friends of the Library
Who Are We?
The Friends of the Davie County Public Library is a 501 c3 group whose mission is to establish closer relations between Davie County Public Library and its patrons at both branches (Cooleemee and Mocksville). F.O.L. supports the library with funds for resources and programs. F.O.L. provides volunteers and activities that support and educate library staff, and sponsors community programs and events.
We are made up of an executive board which coordinates our activities, and our members who help us work to raise funds as well as volunteering to help support and enrich our community through library programs.
