The Friends are committed to the welfare, improvement, and appreciation of the Saratoga Library.

 

Our efforts are made possible by the hard work of our volunteers and donors like you.

The most important thing the Friends do is provide a grant to the Saratoga Library of $150,000 annually to support programs and purchase new materials for their collections.
