Through various fund-raising projects, the Friends donated over $13,000 to the library last year for programming and computer equipment.

Friends of the Poquoson Public Library was awarded the 2017 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
