DeKalb libraries seek donations

The Alliance of Friends of the DeKalb County Public Library have asked residents make monetary and reading donations to area libraries.

All of the funds raised from book donations benefit the libraries, which have seen their budgets for books and materials cut from $2.03 million in 2008 to just $100,000 in 2011. The county, which funds the libraries, has 22 branches across DeKalb.

Money and books can be donated to individual branch libraries.
