The Del Mar Library

We need your help.

In the past year we've expended a great deal of our own funds and would like to
encourage you to help us replenish them so we can continue our many programs.

In addition we are also looking for volunteers to join our Board.


A message from Friends of the Del Mar Library President 


Dear Library Supporters,

I hope you have been enjoying our newly refurbished library. Every time I enter, I am amazed by all the light coming through the windows; It makes the library so bright and cheery. The teen area has unique furniture just for them although I have seen adults sitting in their chairs.

There remain two projects to complete. The lighting in the staff room needs improvements. The City of Del Mar should have this accomplished soon. And we need more lighting in the main library area. That will be done when we have the funding for the light fixtures.

One of my favorite duties is chairing the committee that selects books for the Friends Express. On the first Wednesday of the month we meet to select the books that the Friends purchase. These books remain at our library for 6 months and then go into the County collection. If you have any suggestions, leave them with the librarians and they will pass them on to us or you can join us at 3:30 on the first Wednesday of the month.

We purchase 10 to 15 books each month.

The Del Mar Foundation has awarded a $2,000 grant for adult, teen, and children’s programs. This will fund 50% of our budget for these programs. Our board appreciates this grant and gives our thanks to the Del Mar Foundation.
We also want to thank all our individual donors. We could not do all that we do without your generosity.

Pat Freeman
President, FDML
