The mission of the Friends of the Darrington Library includes promoting community awareness of library services, resources and needs; nurturing partnerships between the library and the people it serves; working with staff in maintaining a user-friendly facility and supporting the creativity of staff; enriching the multi-faceted programs and services of the library that reflect the diversity of our community; and promoting the freedom to explore intellectual, educational, and recreational interests by the patrons of our library.
