Welcome to the FRIENDS of the Davenport Public Library

The mission of the FRIENDS of the Davenport Public Library is to raise funds and manage an endowment portfolio that will provide resources to support the literary and educational purposes of the Davenport Public Library.

Community Outreach Fund

Senior Star Book Club

People of all ages and backgrounds face obstacles getting to the library.

You can make a difference in their lives by giving today!

Funds will help expand the mobile collection our Outreach Department takes to after-school programs and assisted living facilities, agencies like Head Start and Humility of Mary, and local food pantries.

Thousands of Davenport residents have benefitted from this service.

Help expand our reach by making a gift!


A big thank you to MidAmerican Energy Foundation for their generous support of the upcoming renovations to our Main Library!
