History of the Friends

The Friends of Wood Library started in the 1960s. It has had several “resurrections” over the years, but in 1999 an enthusiastic group began the new “Friends” with great success (and a lot of fun!). Please join us as we support Wood Library.

The Friends of Wood Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization that is:

  • dedicated to supporting the library’s mission and programs
  • committed to providing essential funds for library materials, equipment and services
  • passionate about focusing public attention on the library
