Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Washington Township Public Library (the “Friends”) is a non-profit organization devoted to bringing the community and the library together, encouraging the use of the library, and to support the library in developing its facilities.

The Friends support the Washington Township Public Library by fundraising to help fund quality programs and services beyond those provided by the library’s annual budget, including:

  • Museum Passes
  • Holiday program
  • Prizes for Summer Reading
  • Furniture
  • AWE early literacy station
  • Lifetime Learning (also a fundraiser!)

With your help, the Friends can continue to provide the support that connects you with your community.

The Friends is a 501(c)3 organization, making donations tax-deductible.
