The Friends of the Wickenburg Public Library, Inc. is a non-profit, all-volunteer community organization whose members support the Wickenburg Public Library through a variety of activities. We provide financial support to the Town of Wickenburg by supplying approximately one half of the library’s operating budget. An agreement was signed on March 20, 2011 that requires the Friends to pay installments of $117,500 in quarterly payments. Failure to make any payment will result in the closure of Wickenburg’s only library.
The Friends need your help to continue raising funds. Please send your check to Friends of the Wickenburg Public Library, Inc., P. O. Box 484, Wickenburg, Arizona 85358. During September and October of 2011, a local patron has offered $15,000 to the Friends for a matching funds campaign. So your $500 becomes $1,000 — or $100 becomes $200 — and your $20 becomes $40.
