Friends of the Framingham Library

  Who Are the Friends

The Friends of the Framingham Library take an active interest in the development and use of the library system, focus attention on its needs as well as its services to the community, and provide items not included in the library budget. They organize and run successful monthly book sales. They also sponsor programs for children, teens, and adults; purchase books for the summer reading list; and provide passes for museums.

The Friends are a 501c(3) nonprofit organization; contributions are tax deductible and eligible for corporate matching gifts. Your membership helps us to provide many services to library patrons including book discussion groups, Adult and Children’s Programs, and Museum Passes. We appreciate your support! All programs are free and open to all. See you at the Library!

You can support the Friends by volunteering to help or by becoming a member.

View Access Framingham's September video: Framingham Public Library Book Sale

Saturday, October 17, Main Library
10:00-3:00pm Open to the public

The VISA gift card drawing will be held at 9:15am, just prior to the start of the sale. Anyone who joined or renewed membership with the Friends between May 1st and September 30th for the 2015-2016 season is automatically entered to win. It is not necessary to be present.
To honor our military as Veterans’ Day approaches, the Specials section at the front of the book room at the sale will have materials (books, DVDs etc.) about the military. All videos are on sale at a great rate reduction – .10 for one video or 3 for .25. 

Enjoy films?
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 loops work with our assistive devices and your hearing aid. Please don’t hesitate to ask to use them.
Please show your appreciation to the Friends by joining as a member this month or contributing to their program funds. Thank you!

Your help is also needed! If you would like to volunteer your time and be a Friend to the Library, please contact please contact Ms. Wilma Slaight at, or drop by and visit the Friends on Fridays 9:00am–12:00noon at the Main Library.

Donate Your No-Longer-Needed Books, Dvds, and CDs To The Library
We welcome your surplus books which are in good condition. Small donations of 1 or 2 bags are gratefully received any day. Larger donations are welcome on Friday mornings or the day of the monthly book sale. You may also call 508-532-5570 x4333 to arrange for drop-offs. Thank you.

Friends Need a Little Help
The Friends of the Framingham Library are in desperate need of able-bodied volunteers who can help set up the book sale each month from 9:00-10:00 am on the Friday before the sale and to break things down from 2:30-3:30 pm after the sale on Saturday on book-sale weekends. This work involves lifting and stacking heavy boxes of books.
