Each year the Friends of the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library raise around $90,000 to the library thanks to its members.
Our library provides services to over 5,500 patrons a day—both in-person and online—who check out materials, conduct job research, attend programs, do homework, and electronically access a world of information. Our library depends on its Friends to help provide these services.
If you are a current member of the Friends of the Library, thank you for supporting your library and its mission!
