Our Purpose

The Friends of the Anne West Lindsey District Library (“Friends”) is a non-profit organization that helps raise funds to support programs and purchase items to help provide a better library experience. In the past, with donations from local community members and businesses, we have helped purchase public library computers and a smartboard used to teach monthly computer classes.
