Welcome Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Wilson County Public Library is a public charity organization which promotes the use of the library.  Members raise money for a variety of library-related programs and needs which are not met through traditional county government funding.  For example, the Friends installed an excellent sound system in the large assembly room at the main library.  This room is in constant use by the library for its programs and also serves as a meeting space for various civic and community groups.
