First, We would like to thank all of you who have enrolled in the Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program. Our library has received nearly $300 since the program began. That may not seem like much, but this supplement to our small budget allows us the opportunity to provide programming or purchase additional materials to the benefit our our community.

We are grateful to Fred Meyer for making this available to us.

If you signed up in the past, you received an email recently to re-enroll. We encourage you to take the time to visit their website and complete your re-enrollment so we may continue to reap the rewards of this program. If you still have the email there is a link provided or simply visit

Log in and re-link to the Dora Public Library ( #81885)

It’s a simple process:

Sign up by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards card to the Dora Public Library using our group number 81885 at
