Friends of the Westwood Public Library

The Friends of the Westwood Library (FOL) is a not-for-profit volunteer fundraising and outreach organization that works to enhance everyone's experience at our public library. Consisting of a dedicated group of volunteers, we are committed to making the library a place where our community can learn and grow together.

What Do We Do?

The FOL underwrites a variety of library programs including author visits, adult and children's programing, and museum passes, helping the library with needs outside its regular operating budget. 

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!

DONATE: You can make a tax-deductible donation via this link:
