The Friends of the Walkersville Library was organized in the winter of 2010 to help support special projects at the branch. The Friends organization has helped provide funding for a wide variety children and teen programs. In addition to their continued support for providing quality programs, members are important advocates for the library within the community.
The next few years should be an exciting time for the Walkersville Library. A new building complete with a meeting room, children’s area, teen zone, and adult reading area is slated to begin construction in the near future. This facility will be more than double the size of the current building and provide the community with access to many more resources. The Friends will work to raise money for special projects and enhancements specifically for the Walkersville Branch.
