Celebrate Friends of Libraries Week from October 20-26! Library friends groups make it possible for Massachusetts public libraries to go above and beyond for their patrons. Whether it is fundraising through a booksale or funding new furniture, Friends of Libraries are an integral part of the communities that they serve.

Did you know that there are almost 60,000 Friends in Massachusetts at 307 different libraries? To find out if your library has a friend group you can join, find it on the MBLC Library Directory.
