Friends of Woodland Community Library
About the Friends
The Friends of Woodland Community Library represent a 501(c)3 organization under the umbrella of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation. Funds raised by the Friends provide for items and services not otherwise available from the library’s regular budget, such as refreshments for public events, special performers, equipment or furniture–or a new library building!
A new building is our main goal. Our current library is historical and charming (it will be 100 years old in 2009!). However, at less than 2400 square feet on two floors–with no elevator!–with iffy wiring, plumbing, heating and cooling, it’s time for the people of our growing city to enjoy a more spacious, comfortable, and up-to-date library.
- We seek to strengthen Woodland Libraries’ value to the communities it serves.
- We pursue and secure donations, funding and endowments beyond the scope of the library district's operating budget.
- We fund additional projects and services for all ages including children, teens, and seniors.
- We inspire community interest and involvement.
We strive to build public and private initiatives that provide opportunities to enrich life-long learning throughout our community. We make a good library great.
