The Friends of the Edmonds Library was founded in 1979 by 15 founding members and now has over 150 paid members. Our goals are to support and enhance the Edmonds Library, promote literacy, reading and the use of information resources, and to advance education in library and information sciences.
We are a volunteer-run, registered non-profit 501(c)3 organization and donations are tax deductible as a charitable contribution, to the extent allowed by law. We raise money through our on-going book sale in the library, our huge annual book sale, which is usually held the fourth Saturday in October and our Memorial and Gift Fund. We have raised over $456,000 for our programs. The Friends year-round Ongoing Book Sale in the library and our Annual Book Sale in October rely solely on donations from community members.
If you have a few extra books to donate, please use the drop box just inside the door of the library. Do you have multiple boxes of books, CDs, DVDs? We will arrange the "pick up of large book donations!"
To join the Friends of the Library, please ask a librarian or visit our website.
