The Friends of the Riverside Public Library

How it Works

The Friends raised close to $100,000 a year through the sale of donated materials and membership dues. The equivalent of many thousands of dollars are also contributed by the Friends in the form of books and other donated materials that are added directly to library shelves. All money raised by the Friends goes directly to the Library in support of the acquisition of new materials, Library programs and the Literacy Friends Project.
