Friends of the Library

The Berryville Library needs you to be our Friend!

Please consider becoming a member of the Friends today. Annual sponsorships start at just $10.

Membership forms are available at the library or join us at one of our monthly meetings. We meet at the library on the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m.

In May 2017, the Friends of the Berryville Library was reorganized after being inactive for over 20 years. Since then, we have grown to over 100 members and raised over $30,000 to help support the Berryville Library.

If you’ve been to the Berryville Library lately, you have probably noticed that the library is being loved to death. Even though the library is still located in the same limited space it has had since 1990, the Berryville Library serves over 75,000 visitors and hosts 500 programs annually. Those numbers will only continue to rise because the Berryville Library adds hundreds of new patrons every year.

The Friends are committed to helping the library live effectively within its current space and have funded lobby improvements, new program equipment, a new early literacy center computer, and new seating for the library over the last couple of years. We are also looking to the future and helping spearhead the drive to raise money to build a new library facility without raising taxes.

That’s where we need your help. The library connects so many in our community to educational programs and services, technological resources, and materials that are not available anywhere else in Berryville. We need you to connect with us, so we can help the library keep up with the needs of a growing Berryville.

Please join the Friends today!
