The Friends were pleased to receive a very generous

you TD Bank!

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.
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.
Please show your appreciation to the Friends by joining as a member this month or contributing to their program funds. Thank you!
Contribution to the Friends from TD Bank
The Friends of the Framingham Library Association, Inc.
is the first organization to receive a check from TD Bank
under the auspices of the Bank-sponsored Affinity Program.
TD Bank will make an annual contribution based on the
average balance in all members’ accounts that are coded
for the Friends. Call TD Bank at 508-879-7400 and ask
to have your account balances counted on behalf of the
Friends; this is a great way to contribute to the Library
at no cost to you. Let’s make next year’s contribution
even larger so that the Friends can continue to offer more
programming, audio-visuals, books and other services not
covered by the library budget.
Your help is also needed! If you would like to volunteer your time and be a Friend to the Library, please contact Nancy Hanssen at
email@example.com, or drop by and visit the Friends on
Fridays 9:00am–12:00noon at the Main Library.

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.
