Organized in 1977, our organization is a 501(c)3 tax exempt group that supports the Ashland Public Library with voluntary service and monetary contributions. We are able to raise funds through membership fees and book sales. Since our inception we have raised over two hundred thousand dollars for the library to support programs and purchase items that may exceed the library’s regular budget. Our gifts have been used to sponsor events like the annual summer reading program and National Library Week and also for special purchases like the library’s mini-van.
