Friends of the Library
Welcome to the Friends of the Desoto Public Library!                  

friends of the library 2.jpg The "Friends" of the library are a group of quilters who generously volunteer their time and give support for various library sponsored activities. The "Quilters" as they are lovingly called, meet each Thursday morning in the library from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. They are always looking to teach about the craft and give creative pointers for those in need of a little inspiration. Check out our upcoming events below!

If you would like to join the Quilters, go to our Get Involved page. If you have ideas on how you might be able to become a "Friend" to the Library, please let us know through our Contact Us page.
