The Friends group was started in 1972 by a highly dedicated group with the sole purpose of fundraising for the Library and Wilcox Park. This energetic group continues the tradition to this day with a devoted membership and a team of volunteers who give so much of themselves to support their favorite place.
Friends events to look forward to:
Book Sales – A special shelf near the circulation desk is replenished year-round with wonderful bargains
Book Fairs – Twice yearly events, once in the summer and once during December. The Fairs open on a Tuesday afternoon to members only and starting on Wednesday, everyone is invited. Saturday is Bag Sale day with bags provided. Such happy times!
Tea – Delicious dainties and a bit of merry fellowship while wearing traditional (and wild) hats. Usually this is held on the first Saturday in June at 1pm.

The Friends were delighted to be able to provide the funding for all of the above and for so much more.

The Friends is proud to be a part of this community which continually shows its love for the Westerly Library and Wilcox Park.
