East Bremerton Friends of the Library

The mission of the East Bremerton Friends of the Library is to provide support by raising funds for library programs, furnishings and equipment. The Friends accept gently used books and other media materials throughout the year to be sold at our kiosk inside the library and at one of our three large annual book sales held at the Library. All proceeds from book sales directly benefit the Library.

The Friends also accept monetary donations, which are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

Meetings are held at 6 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month (except July and August). Membership is free and new members are always welcome.
