Friends of the Manchester Library

A nonprofit organization

$4,905 raised by 25 donors

75% complete

$6,500 Goal

During 2023 we completed the addition of 900 square feet to the Manchester Library building thanks to your generous donations and other local fundraising.  In 2024 a few details need to be completed to finish our work.  We hope to repaint the exterior of the library and do a minor refresh of the meeting room cabinetry and counter surface.  Please make a gift today that is meaningful to you through the Kitsap Great Give for this project completion.  Every gift counts.  The Friends own and operate the building housing the Manchester Library and fund some of the library's wonderful programming for toddlers, children, teens, and adults.  To do this we raise funds through the long-running Fathers' Day Salmon Bake, plant sales, and the on-going sale of donated used books.  Join us with a gift that will help keep Manchester's library open and in great condition.  Thank you for your support of the Manchester branch of Kitsap Regional Library.


The mission of the Friends of the Manchester Library is to encourage lifelong learning in the Manchester area. We do this by providing and operating a library building, supporting Library programs, and offering a community gathering place.


We own and operate the building housing the Manchester Library as well as supporting programming for toddlers, children, and adults.
