Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our donors, the Way Public Library Foundation & Friends has been able to fund the many outstanding services and programs offered at Way Library.

And it is all thanks to you, our donors!
Shape the Future of Way
Making a bequest to the Way Public Library Foundation & Friends not only is a sign of benevolence, but also is the mark of your desire to help shape the future.
The proceeds of any planned gift can be unrestricted, allowing the Foundation to meet the needs of the Way Public Library as they arise, or can be restricted, offering a way for you to support a program or area in which you are particularly interested.
