But first, a little information for you . . .

Who We Are

We are local volunteers who support the programs and services of Woodland Community Library. As part of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District (FVRL), we operate under the umbrella of the FVRL Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit.

Our Mission 

To enhance the value of Woodland Community Library to those it serves

Why This Mission? Libraries are no longer hush-hush, stuffy places, but vibrant, exciting places for learning, meeting, and relaxing. Besides books, they provide cutting edge technology and digital resources. An up-to-date library benefits communities and individual lives, through:

  • Increased literacy, which leads to more education and lower crime rates
  • Development of job skills
  • Help with job searches and resumes
  • Training for entrepreneurship
  • Providing of a path out of poverty and a voice in the community
  • Lifelong learning

All these services are especially important to:

  • Children and adults in lower-income households
  • Students
  • Those with little education
  • Women
  • People of color
  • The unemployed
  • Those living with a disability
  • Retirees

A modern, fully functional library is essential to a healthy community. Woodland is growing and our current library cannot meet our needs. That is why our vision is clear and critical.
