Friends of the Library

What do the Friends Do?

Since 1983, the Friends of the Russell Library have worked to meet the needs of the Library.

Thanks to money from membership fees, donations, and book sales, the Friends have contributed over $500,000 to improve Russell Library Services.

The Friends provide funding for programs, equipment, and services that would not be available through the Library’s operational budget, such as the popular Museum Passes, which provide free access or discounts to nearly 20 cultural, educational, and recreational facilities around the state.
