Friends of the Library new book bag

The Friends of the Williamson County Public Library (WCPLtn) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 service organization dedicated to the advancement of our community through its library. Friends' contributions, fund-raising activities, and volunteer efforts support adult and youth programs, maintain and increase collections, and provide new technologies, equipment and other improvements. Friends-sponsored book sales are held three times a year with all monies going directly back into the library.

The Friends support continuing education for library staff through the Jane Langston Continuing Education Fund and the Janice Keck Memorial Scholarship.

What We Do:
  • Volunteer time and talent to help librarians as needed
  • Help purchase books and needed materials
  • Provide continuing education for Library staff
  • Sponsor used book sales
  • Encourage gifts, endowments, and memorials
  • Promote the Library in our community

Used Book Donations

The Friends appreciates all who gift the Library with gently used books and other materials. Materials that are accepted benefit the Library in several ways. Donated items are often used either to supplement the Library's collection, or to replace damaged or missing items. Materials that are not appropriate for these purposes are transferred to the Friends to be placed in the Book Sale. See the Gifts and Donations guidelines for more information.

Cash Donations

The Friends encourages interested patrons to purchase new books for the library. Cash and check donations can be accepted by the library to purchase new books for the collection. Patrons may also donate books to honor an individual, give as a gift, or to commemorate a special event. Library staff will acknowledge donors and honorees/memorials when the donation is received. A book plate will be placed in each book(s) purchased with a donation of $20. For more information, contact the Acquisitions Librarian, 615-595-1242, ext.4.
