Did you know:
Membership in the Friends is an affordable way to support the Bettendorf Public Library.
Memberships run for a calendar year. In addition to supporting the library, your membership offers you the opportunity to attend the Friends preview sale when we resume our semiannual book sales, hopefully this fall.
We invite you to join the Friends.
There are no special requirements to become a Friend. Join and realize the satisfaction that you have helped to support the Bettendorf Public Library. As a current or future member of the Friends, please consider volunteering to assist in operation of our book shop or sorting and processing of donations for our sales.
Please use this form to send in your membership for calendar year 2023. If you have already joined since January, we thank you for your membership
The book shop, located in the previous coffee shop area, is open Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Several thousand books are on sale, most for $1 each, with pocket books, chapter books and teen books for 50¢, and children’s books for 25¢. Stock is regularly rotated, with no books on display more than two months. All proceeds from the shop are used to support Library programs.
