Friends of the Westbank Library


Laura's Library Veteran's Courtyard

Thank you to all who made a donation to the Friends of the Westbank Library during the 2020 Veteran's Courtyard Drive for a commemorative paver to honor loved ones who gave military service for our country.

As of May 2021, the new pavers have been installed at Laura's Library. Please visit the library at your convenience to see the additions to this treasured community asset.

2022 Scholarship Awards

Congratulations to Jash Desai and Anaika Eledath who were selected by the Friends Scholarship Committee to be this years recipients of our Scholarship Awards. These awards are based on Westbank Library volunteerism and other factors. Each recipient will receive $1,000 to be used toward their continuing higher education.

Please consider a donation to the Friends so this program will be able to continue.


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.


  • As of 2022, the Friends are seeking persons interested in serving on the board to replace resigning members of the 2021 board.
