Friends of WCL

The Friends of Warrenton Community Library(FOWCL) is a community supported group founded in 2022 to enhance library services and facilities through activities beyond the scope of the library's regular staff and budget. By joining the Friends you join other concerned citizens dedicated to promoting the value of books, literacy and our community library. We raise funds through membership dues, fundraising events, and tax-deductible donations to the Friends of WCL.


Our mission:

The Friends of Warrenton Community Library supports the library through advocacy, volunteer services, and fundraising to provide educational and cultural growth.


The Friends provide meaningful (optional) volunteer opportunities. Let us know if you'd like to help with any of the following:

  1. Friends Board

  2. Friends Fundraisers

  3. Friends Newsletter

  4. Library Volunteer

  5. Gardening Volunteer


We share our time and talents to enhance the programs and services of the library. Our volunteer services free up tax dollars for other library needs.



We also:

  1. Raise funds to supplement library resources

  2. Plan and sponsor special programs and events, like Library After Dark

  3. Promote the use and enjoyment of the library

  4. Lend our hands to help maintain the library
