The Homework Center Student Advisory Board
The Homework Center runs with the help of a student advisory board made up of student representatives from each of the middle and high schools in Framingham.

The board meets on a monthly basis to plan events that raise the profile of the Homework Center Program and education in Framingham.

These students have planned and facilitated Framingham's town-wide middle school spelling and geography bees, craft workshops, fundraising fashion shows, warm clothing and book drives, our town's first middle and high school essay contest along with a host of other library events and activities!

The board accepts new membership during September and October. Home baked treats are served at all meetings :)

We welcome interested students (feel free to bring a friend/s) to attend a meeting - hear and share ideas and see if you would like to join in this fun and rewarding leadership/ community service experience Questions? Contact jgatlin@minlib.net.

Video games are here!
We have recently added several games for the Wii and xBox 360 to the Young Adult collection! Games may be borrowed for free for one week. We would like to expand our gaming collection, so please consider donating games you don't play any more to the library.

Forgotten Our Stuff?
We have manga, anime, fiction, paperbacks, an online list of new books, databases, Internet access, wireless, audiobooks, videos, and all kinds of nonfiction and reference materials. If you're looking for something fun to do or read, or if you just need to study, we're the place - we've got it all!
