Framingham FAB (Family Advisory Board)
The Library is interested in starting a Family
Advisory Board to help us plan and schedule programming and services through the
Children’s Department that will be entertaining, educational and/or useful to, as well as
popular with, library members
of all ages. We may discuss a different topic every month such as using social media in programs, getting ready for
Kindergarten, brain building in preschoolers and elementary students, what you are looking for in school vacation week programs, programs in other languages, etc. We’d like to make Framingham FAB. Please contact Lucy
Loveridge, firstname.lastname@example.org, with your best times for getting together.
