Friends of the Library was established in February 2009 with the focus on supporting the McIver's Grant Public Library and its many programs.
The public is invited to join the Friends organization as it encourages public use of the library, supplements library services and materials, and provides programs for the community.
To join, please fill out a form at the library's front desk. For more information, visit www.dyersburgdyercolibrary.com.
