Friends News

Thank you to Framingham’s Local Access TV Station, who filmed our Bag Room Sale on Saturday, July 17. Take a look at the video HERE.

 

Anatoly Prekrasnyy, a member of Team Framingham, ran an amazing virtual 2020 Boston Marathon for the Friends of the Framingham Library on Sunday, September 6, in San Diego!  The temperature when he finished was 100 degrees.  The Friends offer their heartfelt gratitude to Anatoly and to those who supported his run.  He more than tripled his $3,000 goal and raised over $10,000 for the Friends. Way to go and THANK YOU, Anatoly!
