Who are the Friends? The Friends of the Library are people like you who believe in and support the Woodridge Public Library as a valuable community resource. The Friends is a not-for-profit organization that raises funds through its membership and book sales to provide programs, materials and equipment that fall outside the regular budget allocations of the Library. Friends may also be asked to volunteer occasionally.
The Friends book sale, located in the Lobby, offers used books, magazines and audiovisual items for sale throughout the year. Materials for the sale come from items weeded from the collection and from donations from the public. Donated books and audiovisual items must be in clean and undamaged condition. The Library reserves the right to decline donations of materials that are musty or mildewed, dirty or which will not sell well. No textbooks or encyclopedias over five (5) years old are accepted, nor are magazines or journals.
The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Friends will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7, in the Mahlke Room.
