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.
And the winner is...

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.
