The Friends of the Augusta County Library was founded in 1978 as a charitable arm of the public library in Augusta County, Virginia. We raise money to support the needs of the Augusta County Library system, providing critical resources and programs that are not funded by state or local tax dollars. We also provide volunteers who supplement the library’s staff and provide ongoing services such as landscaping.
We are membership-based organization with members supporting the library by paying dues, volunteering in the library, serving on committees, and assisting with fundraising activities. Officers are elected annually from the membership to oversee organizational activities.
