The week of October 16-22, 2022, is National Friends of the Library Week. The Friends of the Warren-Newport Public Library is a group of community volunteers committed to supporting the library through fundraising, programming, and raising awareness of library services. The group was established on August 16, 1973, and currently has 100 members. Annual donations from the Friends of WNPL are approximately $40,000 and assist in funding library programming, iPads for preschoolers, Museum Adventure Passes, The Point (for students in Grades 1-5), and many other projects.
The Friends believe that a good library is essential to the intellectual and cultural growth of the community. The WNPLD Library Board of Trustees and library staff would like to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library.
We love our Friends! Find out more about becoming a Friend of WNPL on this page, or request an application at the Checkout Desk.
