Our Purpose:

The principal purpose of the Friends of the Library is to raise added funds for the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library so that:

Proceeds from our Spring and Fall Book Sales benefit the Library’s programs and special projects. Most of the books are donated by members of our communities.

Thanks to all our fantastic volunteers and our wonderful Book Sale stalwarts, Bill and Andrew. All your hard work made our Fall 2015 Book Sale a fantastic success! We made over $118,000! All this from 4,860 individual sales. Thank you!

The Friends now manage the Books Behind Bars program. Volunteers find and ship books to Virginia inmates at no cost to the inmates. Expenses are paid through private benefactors and Red Light Management. Financial and book donations to this effort can be sent to the Friends. Click here to make a financial contribution online.

Be sure to put Books Behind Bars in the Designation box, so we know what your donation is intended to support.
