The Friends of the Anacortes Library are dedicated to making the Anacortes Public Library a vibrant and enriching place. Your support will help us continue to provide the library with the resources and programming it needs to serve our community. The Friends of the Library play a crucial role in supplementing the Anacortes Library's limited book purchasing budget, and is the primary resource for children's, teen, and adult programming.
Programs we support at the Anacortes Public Library: summer reading, teen creative writing, tech support, yoga at the Library and more!
