The Friends of the St. Helena Public Library is a member supported non-profit organization established in 1968 to provide support and fund raising for the St. Helena Public Library.
The City of St. Helena has a long history of public support for library service. As early as 1875 there was movement underway to establish a library. The current building was constructed in 1979 and named for a much loved local physician, Dr. George Wood, who was also a major donor and long time supporter of the library. Dr. Wood also generously provided the Friends of the Library with an endowment whose interest may be used for capital improvement projects.
To provide funds for other library needs the Friends of the Library depends on the annual support of our members. We provide funds for the purchase of books and other library materials, Adult Programs, Children’s Summer Reading Program, movie nights, Youth Programs, etc. In other words we provide support to help the Library remain the vital, award-winning component of our community that we have come to love and appreciate.
