The Friends manage the Whitney Book Corner, a second-hand book store  staffed  by volunteers and stocked entirely with donated books. Proceeds from the store and from several book sales held during the year at the library are used to benefit library programs.  CLICK HERE FOR  PHOTO GALLERY. The Friends  publish a newsletter five times a year with information about upcoming programs, free movies at the library, book sales, and member benefits.
