We believe the Library is the basis of a healthy, literate community. Each and every contribution to The Friends helps us to achieve our goals of providing the facilities, programs, and services required for a “lifetime of learning.”


A membership provides you with many opportunities to meet national authors and participate in exclusive programs, lecture series, and events throughout the year. 


If you do not reside in the City of Detroit, a perk of membership at the sponsor level or above, you are eligible for a Detroit Public Library card. With this card you may check out library materials at any of the 22 branches.
