Friends of the Westwood Public Library

The Friends of the Westwood Library (FOL) is a not-for-profit volunteer fund raising and out reach organization that works to enhance everyone's experience at our public library.

What Do We Do?

How Can You Help? The FOL underwrites author visits, children's programing and museum passes, helping the library with needs outside their operating budget -and we contribute to making the library a fun place to visit !!

You can join the FOL with your financial response to our autumn Membership Drive. While the appeal is sent to everyone in Westwood, FOL membership is open to anyone who uses and loves our library. We welcome volunteers for all our functions

If you would like to join the FOL or want more information about any of our many and varied activities, our email address is
