News from Friends
Adopt a Book Program

The Friends of the Libraries, led by Friends' President Diane Babuin, initiated the Adopt a Book program to help increase the stock of books in local libraries. To participate, simply donate at least $25.00 to "adopt" a book that will be purchased for the age group and branch library you choose.

Each adopted book will carry a specially inscribed bookplate.

Adopt a Book forms are available at all Woodbridge Libraries. Click  HERE  for an online version to print and mail.
Visit the Main Library for your next culture pass, courtesy of the Friends of the Library. Most Museum Passes circulate like a book for five days. Check our new catalog for availability of passes.

Volunteer Hours for
Young Adult Book Reviews

You asked, we listened. For those in need of more community service hours, you now have another option! Here’s how it works:

  • You read a book at least 100 pages in length.
  • You fill out the form we provide in the library, which includes information about the book, and a 1.5-page review (I.e., Half of the front and the entire back of the page) of the book. 
  • Turn the form in--we give you one hour of community service for every 100 pages read. So if you read a 374-page book, you get three hours.

That’s it. It’s easy! 
Many of our programs do not require registration, but kindly click on the flyers and links to register for programs on-line or call the library locations to ensure that space is available.
