The Friends of the Washington County Library is a 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers dedicated to supporting the activities of the library. We strive to increase public awareness of current services available from the library. We provide funding for programs, services, and items outside the regular budget of the library, as well as serve as a source of volunteers for library activities.
