The Ashland Friends of the Library is a nonprofit, community-based support group for the Richard S. Gillis Jr. Library, a Branch of the Pamunkey Regional Library. The Advisory Board meets quarterly, and the membership meets annually. The Friends group supports library programs and community events, and purchases items needed by the library. For more details, read about our history and our contributions to the Ashland Library.
The Advisory Board of the Friends of the Library works with the Ashland and Pamunkey Regional Library staff to determine library needs that cannot be funded under the current budget. Past contributions include special programs for children, teens and adults, new shelving and chairs. We also contributed major funding to renovate the multipurpose room, entry hallway and bathrooms.
