Friends of the Library
Great Friends Make a Great Library!
Who We Are
We are library lovers and community volunteers who have fun donating our time to help the Washington County Public Library. We support the library through advocacy, fundraising, and community programming. Here is information on our Friends of the Library Board of Directors.
What We Do
We raise money for our libraries by selling used books at our book sales and at our Birdhouse at the Abingdon library all year long. Membership dollars and other fundraisers contribute as well.
How Do the Friends of the Library Make a Difference?
We contribute proceeds from books sales, fundraising, and memberships every year to our libraries to help fund programs and events, including:
- Summer Reading Challenge for all ages
- Sunday with Friends visiting author series
- Special events such as National Library Week, Banned Books Week, etc.
- General library support our Book Page subscription
- Staff Christmas luncheon
- AND MUCH MORE!
