We are a volunteer, non-profit organization, formed in 1958, to bring together persons interested in our library in order to FOCUS public attention on the library and stimulate public support of the library, FOSTER greater use of the library and its services, ENCOURAGE gifts, endowments and bequests to the library, and SUPPORT the library in developing its programs and facilities as a vital multi-media center for the community.
We raise money to purchase those desirable extras the tax dollar doesn’t cover, including library equipment and furnishings. Our fundraisers have included:
- Bi-annual book sales in June and November
- Coffee, tea, hot chocolate sales in the lobby
- Benefit nights at Ocean Gaming and Flatbread Company
- Red Sox tickets raffles
We host these yearly community events:
- Bi-annual children’s book sale for Centre School first graders
- Valentine Tea for children, ages 3-8
We sponsor speakers, films, exhibits, book reviews, and assist with programs for children. We aslo provide all snacks for the Weston Theater, and we occasionally provide volunteers to help with various library functions.
The FRIENDS hold one general meeting each September, which is open to the public. We also strive to hold general meetings at least bi-annually.
Our board meetings are typically the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm at the library. All are welcome!
