FRIENDS OF THE WESTFIELD LIBRARY

The Friends of the Westfield Library
(FOWL) is an organization designed to
promote and support the mission of the
Westfield Washington Public Library.
Through its fundraising efforts, primarily
book sales held in the library and online,
the group raises money used to fund library
programs and to purchase items that are
not in the library’s operating budget.
We will have a discard sale in early
September and a nearly new sale in early
December. Nearly new items are suitable
for gift giving during the holidays!
