Vancouver Island Regional Library’s Wellington branch is getting a little help form its friends.

From spring book sales to the current quilt raffle, the Friends of Wellington Library continually fundraise so the public can enjoy the services provided by the branch at 3032 Barons Rd.

The quilt was donated by a library patron and all funds raised go toward equipment for the branch. Recent purchases include chairs for both the children and teen areas of the building.

Raffle tickets can be purchased from any member of Friends of Wellington Library.

For more information, please call Pat at 250-758-8651.
