Friends of the Library


The Friends of the Everett Public Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides financial support and volunteer assistance for activities, programs, and services that make the library a better place for all its patrons.  In addition to the monetary support you give, your membership tells the community that you value our library.  

You may also contact the library director, Abby Cooley, at 425-257-8022 for information about the Friends.

Contribute to a Legacy

The Friends have established a Friends of the Everett Public Library Endowment with the Community Foundation of Snohomish County for the benefit of the library’s collections and programs. Only a portion of the interest is spent, allowing the principle to grow over the years. You may donate directly to this fund through the Community Foundation.

You may also donate to the Everett Public Library Fund in Honor of Mark Nesse through the Community Foundation. The library uses the interest to support programs, services, and collections.

If you are interested in establishing an endowment, contact the Library Director or the Community Foundation for more information.
