WHO ARE THE FRIENDS

In 1985 a group of dedicated library supporters formed the Friends of the Westbank Library as a 501c3 non-profit organization.

For years this group has actively raised thousands of dollars to purchase such things as the Mark Twain Statue, the Backyard Dragon, the Giving Tree, and the Bubble Machines, as well as to provide scholarships to exceptional teen library volunteers. While the goals of the Friends have remained consistent since its inception, the 2013 board adopted the goal of expanding the participation of the Westbank community within the Friends organization.
