Baby Lapsit

Come sing and play with words, rhyme and puppets at Baby Lapsit. Parents can network while babies pick up phonological awareness, one of six foundations of future reading success. This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers runs about 20 minutes and introduces the pleasures of the library to your baby or toddler.

Ages 0-2 with an adult

Banner Unveiling Open House

Beautiful new banners are being installed in our parking areas at both Libraries. Come have a look!

Part of a photography project to represent and celebrate our wonderful patrons, these banners were made possible by the many community members who offered to take part in the project, and the support of Friends of the Framingham Library. We hope they inspire you to discover all your Library has to offer!

Main Library Book Group: The Wife by Meg Wolitzer

En route to accompany her husband in accepting yet another prestigious literary prize, Joan has decided to stop playing the role of supportive wife, turning a blind eye to her husband’s transgressions, subjugating her own talents along the way. This is an acerbic and astonishing take on a marriage and the truth that beneath the surface there so often lies a secret.
