I am looking for volunteers.

Due to retirements, relocations and family situations, there are an unprecedented number of leadership positions being vacated in the very near future, including 3 board officers as well as the chair of the book sale committee.  The time commitment is not onerous: the board meets for 2 hours on the 4th Wednesday of each month, deciding how to raise and allocate funds to support Duncan, while the committee chair is mostly occupied overseeing our twice yearly book sales.

Even better, come to the Friends Toast to Summer happy hour on Tuesday, June 16 at 7 pm at the home of Carolyn and Jim Harris and talk about volunteering with the Friends.  We really need your support.

Will you volunteer?  If so, please contact Friends Treasurer Carolyn Harris by email at duncanlibraryfriends@gmail.com or directly at cdharris3@gmail.com.

Thank you.  And thank you for your continuing support of Duncan, our community library.




Our organization supports the Duncan Library, located in the heart of Del Ray.

We sponsor a variety of educational and enrichment programs that include a film club and poetry society.  We also host biannual book sales to support the library’s collection, programming, and staff.

We always welcome new members — you may join online or forms are available at the circulation desk.  Memberships are good for one year from the date you join.

All members of Duncan Friends who provide an email address receive announcements and reminders of events including book sales, author talks, and special programs, and an electronic copy of the quarterly newsletter.

Thank you for your continued support of our neighborhood library!
