Friends of the Library


Friends of the Waskom Public Library is a non-profit 501(c) (3) volunteer organization comprised of members who wish to advance the role of the library as a vital community resource and as institution critical to the culture, education, and enrichment of our community. Membership is open to the entire community.

The Friends fulfill their mission by:

  1. Supporting libraries, literacy and lifelong learning.
  2. Supporting the Waskom Public Library in its service to the community through volunteerism.
  3. Promoting the services and activities of the library through public awareness.
  4. Assisting the library in maintaining a welcoming and user friendly environment.
  5. Enhancing the library by providing financial support through gifts, grants, bequests, and other fund-raising efforts.
  6. Supporting legislation to strengthen libraries
  7. Building a team of advocates with depth, leadership ability, and desire to support a premier library program.
  8. Acting as an advisory group to the library administration.

Efforts to raise money by the Friends of the Library are to enhance the financial efforts by local government, not to diminish them. To that end, the Friends conduct an on-going sale of books and other materials.

The Friends also conduct an informative demonstration on interesting subjects for the community in conjunction with their meeting. They also offer computer classes for the public.
