Who We Are An organization of local citizens who support the programs and services of Woodland Community Library through fundraising, promotion, and volunteering. We operate under the umbrella of Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit. Funds raised by the Friends provide for items and services not within the library’s regular budget, such as refreshments for public events, special performers, equipment or furniture, and now, a new library building!
- To strengthen Woodland Community Library’s value to the greater Woodland area
- To secure funding for projects and services beyond the library’s operating budget
- To inspire community interest and involvement in the library
Why We’re Working for a New Library Our current library building is historical and charming–it was 100 years old in 2009, and the city has allowed us to use it since 1927!–but at less than 2400 square feet on two floors, with no elevator, and iffy wiring, plumbing, flooring, heating and cooling, it doesn’t meet our community’s needs. It’s time for a more spacious, comfortable, and up-to-date library for our growing town.
Join Us! Libraries need Friends and we’re always eager to welcome more. We invite you to join us. Dues are just $10 per year, and you can be as active in the organization as your schedule allows. Come share the fun, the benefits, and the vision! Join us.
Meetings Meetings are held at 1:30pm on the second Thursday of each month. Currently the meetings are set up as a video chat, but when we meet in person, the meetings are at The Woodland Grange, 404 Davidson Avenue, 98674. Everyone is welcome to attend!
