FOL Update

Support the Friends of the Durango Public Library Bookstore by Dining at Applebee's

 Make a difference while enjoying a delicious meal on Wednesday, May 22nd at Applebee’s, located at 800 Camino del Rio. From 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM, 15% of all dine-in and takeout orders will be donated to the FOL Bookstore. By participating in this event, you’ll be supporting a bookstore that plays a vital role in promoting literacy and raising funds for the library’s programs and services. Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause while treating yourself to a satisfying meal.


We are a nonprofit that subsists entirely thanks to contributions from our generous community. If you would like to make a contribution or pay your membership dues, you may do so here. We process these transactions via PayPal to ensure your private data remains secure. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at your convenience.
