Friends of the Framingham Library Make & Take Sign Fundraiser

Join us for a fun evening with friends at a unique DIY Fun-Raiser! Guests make 4x24 hand painted wooden signs with their choice of a pre-designed saying/quote!

NO drawing, writing or stencils involved, perfect for those that feel they aren't crafty as well as anyone who wants to be creative!

Choose from over 200 pre-designed quotes & sayings. There is something for everyone—funny, romantic, holidays, motivational, sports, grandkids, and pets. Leave with them dry and ready to gift or hang! Quick, Easy, and FUN!

Unlike that stack of embarrassing paintings hidden in the closet or under the bed, you and your friends will be proud to display (or gift) these unique signs created to match your personal taste and decor, all while helping The Friends of the Framingham Library.

Storywalk (every day through November 15)

Take a self-guided walk around the library to read our fall title, Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds! Start at the bottom of the Pearl St. ramp, continue around the building, up the Lexington St. steps, then halfway down the ramp to the stairs to the Reading Garden and the end of the story.

Write to an Author

In honor of National Author’s Day, stop by the library to write a friendly letter to any author you enjoy! Tell them what book they wrote is your favorite, ask them questions, or just draw them a picture. We’ll mail letters at the end of the month to the authors!
