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.

The Advisory Board is the decision-making body that determines which purchases the Friends will make for the library. Besides serving as the Friends’ fiscal agents, the Board members plan programs, coordinate book sales and other fund-raising events, and help out at many library functions.

The Friends of the Richard S. Gillis, Jr. Library is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Financial information is available on request.
