The Friends of the Westerly Public Library and Wilcox Park have been the fundraising and volunteering champions since 1972. They sponsor special programs on art, history, music, and readings by renowned authors. In 2005, they established the Friends Endowment Fund with the interest going towards the operating costs of the Library and Park.
The Friends of the Westerly Library and Wilcox Park are best known for the book sales they hold to benefit the library. Currently they are held in the Spring, Summer and Winter. All proceeds from the sales go towards the purchase of new materials for the Library.
