New Chess Set!
The Friends recently replaced the chess set in the backyard at the Laura Bush Library! This set has been replaced twice through the years and is a much loved activity at the library.
We Need Bakers!
May, 2019 & December, 2019
Our bake sales are the week prior to finals at Westlake H.S. and the students are always hungry!
If you would like to help us bake, please contact us at Friends@westbanklibrary.com. All help is appreciated!
Items should be placed in baggies which will be sold for $1 each. Baked goods can be dropped off at either branch at anytime during that week.
Our Annual Quilt Raffle was a Great Success!
Congratulations to our winner,
A big THANK YOU to the library quilters group for their incredible work on this quilt and continued commitment to supporting the Friends of the Westbank Library!
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.
