Winfield Library Friends

The goal of the Winfield Library Friends is to provide volunteer assistance and funds from fundraising for the following:

  1. Family and Children's Programs: Summer Reading Programs, story hours, puppet shows, contests, Ice Cream Social
  2. Equipment: computers, bookshelves, computer desks
  3. Library Materials: Books, audio & video materials, magazines, computer software

So far, the Winfield Library Friends has donated countless hours of volunteer service and over $47,000! These funds helped to provide shelving, a die cutter for cutouts for story hour craft projects and library bulletin boards, postage and printing costs for the library's quarterly newsletter, summer reading funds, and more.
