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.

2021 Friends Scholarship Awards

Congratulations to Adit Trivedi and Azinab Sajid, winners of the 2021 Scholarship Awards.

We wish them well in their future academic endeavors, and give thanks to all who applied for the awards as well as for their volunteer commitment to the Westbank Library District.


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.


The Friends Organization is always looking for volunteers! Volunteering can include things like:

  • Baking for our bake sales.

  • Helping with the Artisans' Market.

  • Organizing volunteer dinners and appreciation dinners for our library staff and their volunteers.

  • Serving on the Scholarship Committee.

  • Serving on the Friends Board.
