Event to benefit Friends of Dallas Public Library
People at the Preston Forest Whole Foods, 11700 Preston Road on Thursday will be able to sign up for a free library card or check out a book from the Dallas Public Library’s Book Bike. Shoppers can also visit the traveling Dallas Public Seed Library, and check-out seeds from us to plant in your garden. The activities are part of a special fundraising event for the Friends of the Dallas Public Library (FoDPL).
All day Thursday, April 19, five percent of the store’s net sales will go to the FoDPL, a nonprofit organization that since 1950 has supported the Dallas Public Library (DPL) through advocacy and raising funds for library programs, resources, services and information to the Dallas community.
“We encourage people to visit with us on Thursday and learn about our organization and some of the projects and programs being supported by our efforts,” said FoDPL Executive Director Mary Wilonsky.
