WHO ARE WE AND HOW DO WE HELP?
Friends of West Slope Library is a 501-C3 non-profit volunteer group formed to increase public interest and participation in West Slope Community Library and to strengthen the library’s collection, activities, and fiscal well-being.
We help pay for books, programs, and other library needs. Our library funding comes from Washington County property tax levies. Since public funding can be subject to change, the Friends can help provide a financial “safety net” in case regular Washington County funding is not sufficient.
Funding comes from memberships, donations, bequests, our in-house book sale, annual tulip sale, and through West Slope Library patrons using the Oregon Bottle Drop, Fred Meyer Community Rewards, and shopping through Amazon Smile on the Friends behalf.
HOW CAN I BECOME A FRIEND AND SUPPORT THE LIBRARY?
You can join the Friends at any time by giving a tax-deductible donation of $15 or more annually. Or become a Friend automatically by volunteering 20 hours annually at the library. Please let our library staff know if you are interested in volunteering. There are also other ways to support the library.
