Engaging programs at the library even better with Friends

Friends of the Library are instrumental in bringing literary and cultural events to our community. They promote literacy, support engaging programs and lifelong learning, and provide for specialized materials for career development and to support local businesses.

The Friends sponsor programs for a variety of interests at our libraries and in the community. All programs are free, and we hope you get a chance to enjoy these experiences and workshops.

Programs Sponsored by the Friends

Family Museum Pass Program

The family museum pass program has been generously funded by the Friends of Spokane County Library District and the Diane E. Zahand Fund. Museum passes for Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, Mobius Children’s Museum, and Mobius Science Center, are available to reserve online. Learn more about the program on our website.

Spokane Symphony Pass Program

The Spokane Symphony Pass program offers County Library cardholders the opportunity to attend and experience a professional orchestral performance. For select Sunday matinee performances, multiple passes are available, and each pass is for one ticket that must be exchanged at the Symphony box office. You can check availability and release dates for passes on our website.
