How Do I Become A Friend of the Library?

I have a library card. 

Am I a Friend?

Having a library card is not the same as being a Friend. Your library card gives you access to the wealth of resources and customer service available throughout the Dakota County Library system.  If you become a Friend of Robert Trail Library, you become a member of a completely separate nonprofit 501(c)3 
organization dedicated to supporting the needs of the library.

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.
