Friends of John Marshall Library

John Marshall Library

The Friends of John Marshall Library is an organization of involved community volunteers who support the vital work of our neighborhood library. We are dedicated to ensuring that the needs of the library and the public it serves are met through financial contributions and support. As a Friend of John Marshall, members continue to use the services and resources of the library by providing a small contribution that recognizes the importance of the library to its patrons.
