Welcome to Friends of Prescott Public Library

Our mission is to enhance the library through fundraising, advocacy, and volunteerism

Each year the library staff provides the Board of the Friends wit a funding request.  These funds are used to cover costs of programs, supplies and other support, but not for staff salaries and benefits; those costs remain the responsibility of the City.  Through book sale and fundraising efforts, Friends of the Prescott Public Library provides approximately $120,000 annually to the library.

We Need Your Support

Our Impact

There are Friends of the library and then there are the Friends.  The Friends were organized to help a good library become even better. Since its founding in 1968, the Friends of the Prescott Public Library have raised enough money to enhance Prescott’s Living Room.  The Friends also accept and administer funds given to the benefit of the library. Membership dues, donations of books and magazines and contributions and bequests turn into counteless library services and Friends of the Prescott Public Library programs.  It’s magic.
