Friends Of The Poquoson Publick Library

Who are the Friends?

Friends of the Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) group that exists to focus public attention on libraries, stimulate the use of the library's services and facilities, and encourage gifts, endowments, and bequests to the library. Through various fund-raising projects, the Friends donated over $10,000 to the library last year for programming and computer equipment.

Friends of the Poquoson Public Library was awarded the 2010 Friends of the Library Award by the Virginia Library Association for their continued support for the library and the community. Be a member of this award-winning organization. For more information, email friendsofpoquosonpubliclibrary@gmail.com.

Monetary Donations

A monetary gift to the Friends of the Library will help the Friends provide special programs and materials that are not part of the city library budget. A gift may be made to express sympathy, appreciation, or to honor an individual on a special occasion. All gifts will be acknowledged to the person designated by the donor. For further information, contact Nancy Brooks, Special Gifts chair(868-6793 or hokie_vt@hotmail.com) or email friendsofpoquosonpubliclibrary@gmail.com
