Richland Library Friends host four books sales a year – winter, spring, summer and fall – as well as some specialty or half-priced sales. Combined, these events raise about $70,000 a year to support the library, and that money goes directly back to local residents.
Since 1975, Richland Library Friends have been supporting the library through specifically-targeted advocacy efforts and raising financial support for programs.
