Friends receive $250 from Framingham Lions Club
The Friends of the Framingham Library received a $250 donation from the Framingham Lions Club on June 14, 2017. Lions Club President Roxana Camporeale presented the check at the Friends’ Annual Meeting. She said the gift is in recognition of the support the Friends provide to the Library.
In existence since 1949, the Framingham Lions Club is part of the largest international organization providing humanitarian services to local communities in the US and worldwide. The 49 Massachusetts Clubs also support the state's institutes that conduct groundbreaking research in the prevention and cure of eye-related diseases.
The Friends of the Framingham Library, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to supporting the work of the Framingham Library, are extremely appreciative of the support and recognition from the Framingham Lions Club.
Silhouette Fundraiser for the Friends of the Library a Success
Kids of all ages, from babies to adults, thoroughly enjoyed having their silhouette portraits created at the Christa McAuliffe Branch Library on Friday and Saturday, April 28 and 29. The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Framingham Library, featured Massachusetts artist Jean Comerford, who cuts these lovely portraits freehand, with no shadow or tracing. In just minutes Ms. Comerford captured the image of her models, and they walked away with a special treasure.
Friends of the Framingham Library receive donation from Seeds of Grace
The Friends of the Framingham Library have received a $500 donation from the Seeds of Grace fund. This gift is in celebration of the work the Friends and the Library do in the Framingham community.
The Seeds of Grace mission fund was created when Grace Congregational Church merged with Edwards Church. Social justice, environmental protection and local service had been central to Grace Church’s identity; Seeds of Grace carries on that legacy. For more information about Seeds of Grace, contact Linda Hilliard, Seeds of Grace Outreach Team at email@example.com.

The Friends of the Library make the screening of all our films possible by paying for the costly film licenses needed for public viewing. Each year these licenses total almost $1,000 and without the contribution of the Friends, it would not be possible to offer as many films as we do now. The Friends have purchased hearing loops to be used by those who need assistance hearing our programs.
The Friends of the Framingham Library hold monthly book sales on the third Saturday of the month. Please click here for details of the upcoming sale.
