Message from the Framingham Public Library Foundation

Thank you to all who purchased a Commemorative Brick! The Bricks will be installed at the McAuliffe Branch Library in the Spring. We greatly appreciate the donations we have already received for our Annual Appeal. Your donations help us meet a matching challenge. These funds will be used to modernize the Costin Room at the Main Library, which includes enhancing audio-visual and broadcasting capabilities in the room. To honor the memory of a loved one, consider a donation to the Framingham Public Library Foundation. Checks should be payable to the Framingham Public Library Foundation, and donors should specify the honoree and when applicable, the person(s) to receive notification of the donation.

FPL Foundation: The Costin Room Experience

The Framingham Public Library Foundation’s focus for 2017 is on raising funds to upgrade the audio and video systems in the Main Library’s Costin Room to current standards and also to add recording and broadcast capabilities. This will allow us to share many of the great events you see in this newsletter as they take place. We have already received a grant of $91,000, plus help with furnishings from the Friends of the FPL. Your donation will help us reach our goal of raising a total of $256,000, the cost of the project. You can donate at or with a check made out to the FPLF and sent to the Main Library, 49 Lexington St., Framingham, MA 01702.
