Friends of the Centreville Regional Library
Established in the early 1970s, the Friends of the Centreville Regional Library have been active supporters of the Library from its inception. Since 2005, a new group of talented and enthusiastic volunteers has revitalized the Friends organization. The Friends maintain ongoing fund raising activities with proceeds benefiting the Centreville Regional Library and the system as a whole. Strong advocates for the public library, their effective support for two bond issues providing capital for both the property and building of the Centreville Regional Library was particularly impressive. As they look to the future, the Friends of the Centreville Regional Library will continue to grow in size and influence as a vital resource for the Library and its community.
