Our library is staffed entirely by an energetic and dedicated group of more than 40 volunteers. It is open to the public, free, self-sustaining and does not receive any funding from the Town of Washington. Almost 75% of the yearly budget is used for expanding the collection of books, CDs, videos, DVDs and computer equipment.
