Friends of The Seattle Public Library
The Friends of the Seattle Public Library is a non-profit, grassroots membership group dedicated to promoting Seattle's library system, which is an essential institution of our community.
About the Friends
Volunteer members advocate for, educate about, and raise funds on behalf of the Library. The Friends raise funds to be used by The Seattle Public Library for activities not ordinarily covered under the Library's operating budget since ongoing Library operations are paid for by city of Seattle tax dollars and are the responsibility of our city government.
The Friends operate a well-stocked FriendShop in Seattle's spectacular downtown Central Library.
