FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Friends of the Library groups are 501(c)(3) organizations under the umbrella of Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation. Friends of the Library groups that support each Fort Vancouver Regional Library District library welcome the donation of books to benefit the library. Book donations to the Friends of the Library that the library can use for the collection are donated to the library by the Friends. The Friends place materials not of use to the library in book sales, the proceeds of which are used to benefit library services. For example Friends groups sponsor programs, purchase additional books and equipment, and provide refreshments for library programs.
