The Friends of the Napa Library is delighted to be participating in this year’s CanDo’s Give!Guide. We join 45 other remarkable local non-profits that were selected by Napa Valley CanDo to participate in this extraordinary vehicle for fund raising, community support and collaboration.
We are tasked primarily to raise funds to support both new and on-going library programs for both children and adults. To get a good look at what happens with the fruits of our labors and what programs we fund, please see Where The Money Goes. Our main sources of funding are memberships and book sales. In addition to our 10 day quarterly book sales of gently used books, CDs and DVDs, we also offer these items for sale year round in the lobby of the Napa City Library.
It takes many people, mainly volunteers, to make us successful. Volunteers serve in a wide range of capacities including sorting and cleaning books for the sales, organizing and staffing the quartely sales, community outreach and serving on our board.
A particularly important goal of Friends of the Library is to encourage young readers to become lifelong readers. As evidenced by the library programs we support, we believe that getting children to love books turns them into teens who love books which results in adult book lovers. And the cycle continues from generation to generation!
