Friends with Kindles

    The Friends of Duarte Library is pleased to announce that ten more Kindles will be added to the Duarte Library collection in September. Supplementing the $1000 grant awarded from Los Angeles County Library Foundation with monies from our fundraising efforts, FDL purchased another ten Kindles in order to have more children’s genres available. Soon kids will be able to check out Magic Treehouse Collection, Diary of a Wimpy Kid Collection, Young Teen Fiction, Teen Fiction and Kid’s Favorites. Of interest to adults will be the collections entitled True Crimes, Game of Thrones, Current Events, Literary Fiction and World History.

    Our belief that we are more than books is evident in what we have done for the Duarte Library. Over the past two years, the Friends have purchased 20 Kindles, more than $12,000 worth of books, and provided programs for both children and adults.

    As our way to raise funds to reach our annual goals, we will host the second annual Wine Down at D’Aquino Italian Imports on November 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This year, we will have fabulous food and wine, our silent auction, an expanded live auction and we will be raffling off a few terrific items. So mark your calendars now!
