The Friends of the Vernon Area Public Library is a nonprofit organization created in 1979 to stimulate community support of the Library through an organized group that could assist the Library in its goal of serving the public; to increase the numbers of citizens who understand the Library’s facilities and needs that are not attainable through operation funds; to stimulate the cause of books and reading in the District through appropriate programs and activities; and to help the Library to maintain its position as an outstanding library.
