Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Framingham Library take an active interest in the development and use of the Library, focus attention on its needs as well as its services to the community, and provide items not included in the library budget. The Friends sponsor programs for children, teens, and adults; purchase software for the Creation Station, apps for the iPads in the Children's Room, books for the summer reading program, and fund museum passes.
Not only do the Friends support the library, but we also give back to the community. The Friends have donated hundreds of books to A Place to Turn in Natick, MCI Framingham, King Elementary School in Framingham, and Framingham Adult ESL Plus. We are looking for ways to donate extra books and duplicate copies. Please contact Wilma Slaight at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.

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.
