We are a membership organization that raises money for library services by sponsoring book sales, and other fundraising events. Our membership is open to anyone with a donation of $10 or more.
This year the Friends of the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library will provide over $92,000 to the library. Our libraries continue to provide 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.
