WHO ARE WE? 

The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library group is a non-profit organization committed to helping the Woodbury Public Library. The Friends sponsor special events for the public throughout the year, fundraise for the Library in order to provide additional services not covered by the Library’s Budget,  and promote awareness for the library throughout the community. Every time you use your library card to check out materials you are benefiting from our great Friends organization!

 

NEWSLETTER:

The Friends publish a newsletter which helps keep our patrons up-to-date on the current Friends’ projects and activities. Please pick one up at our Circulation Desk or download using the link at the top of the page.

 

WAYS IN WHICH WE RAISE FUNDS

BOOK SALE:

There’s always a sale on books at the Library! Stop by the Friends Book Sale cart (on the first floor) for deals on fiction, non-fiction, CDs, DVDs, and kids books. 

 

BOOK PLATE PROGRAM: 

Honor your loved ones while supporting the Library. For $50, you can choose a book title and inscription of your choice to be added to the Library’s collection of circulating books. Great for Birthdays, Retirement, in Memorial, or to mark a special occasion. All proceeds from the sale directly benefit the Library.
