Please join the Friends of the Woodbury Public Library!
WHO ARE WE?
The Friends of the Woodbury Public Library group is a non-profit organization committed to helping our library. The Friends sponsor special programs throughout the year and promote support 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!
Through the generous efforts of the Friends of the Woodbury Public Library, the library has been able to purchase computers and other equipment, and has added to existing collections such as our Large Print Books, Books on Tape and CD collections. A tremendously successful fund drive sponsored by our Friends organization resulted in donations that went a long way toward furnishing and decorating our new library building. Another of the Friends’ projects helps the library to bring downloadable audiobooks and eBooks to cardholders by subscribing to OverDrive, the leading distributor of digital media content to libraries.
Funding from the Friends group also aided in the creation of an art gallery on the second floor of the library. If you are an artist interested in displaying your work in The Gallery, please click here for more information and application.
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.
The Friends are always looking for new members — and you can join for as little as $10 per year! If you’re interested in meeting some wonderful people and supporting literacy in your hometown, the Friends would love to see you at their next meeting.
