The organization raised funds for the library's capital projects, including the opening of a main library at 303 Gilbert Street, Castle Rock in 1968. The Friends of the Douglas County Library hosted tours of historic county homes, film screenings, lectures, used book sales and fairs, and other events to promote and improve the library system. Some of their early accomplishments include an expansion to the children's collection, installation of book drops, and purchases of furniture and operating equipment.
