Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries

Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries

Friends of Mid-Columbia Libraries (FOL) maintains association of persons interested in providing aid and assistance to the library community. FOL has a common concern for the library's active expansion and participation in community life. We have a conviction that good library service is important to everyone.

Our activities may include: fundraising for equipment, materials, and other needs of the library which are beyond the means of the Board of Trustees; sponsoring culturally-enriching community programs such as talks, exhibits, films, and story hours; and gifts of books and desirable collections, etc. All activities are free and open to the public.

Currently, there are active Friends groups in Benton City, Connell, Kennewick/Pasco, Othello, Prosser, West Pasco, and West Richland.

  • For more information about the FOL, contact President Fernie Coe at 509-322-6949, or watch the FOL video on YouTube.
