Who are the Friends?

We are a happy bunch who love our library! The Friends contribute time, money, and talent to support the Ventress Library with programming, museum passes, and funding. Members are welcome (but not obliged) to join our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month, September through June. Contact the library for more info. We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donations are tax-deductible.
