Welcome to the Wilbraham Friends of the Library

Who are the Friends?
The Wilbraham Friends of Library, Inc. was formally incorporated in 1976. We are an organization of over 350 individuals and families who believe in the importance of the public library in our everyday lives. The Friends support approximately $20,000 in programs, services and media purchases on a yearly basis and volunteer numerous hours fundraising and advocating for our library. Our activities are funded through membership dues, trips, book sales, special events, sales of other promotional items and DVD late fees.

Our many activities include the Library newsletters, the Annual Art Show, an annual Book Sale, sponsored trips, passes to selected museums and tourist sites, Children's programs, the Film Movement Series and cultural programs. Information on these and other library activities may be found on the Wilbraham Library’s web site www.wilbrahamlibrary.org. under Calendar of Events or within the activities sections. Our logo insert is reflected throughout the WPL website for the various supported activities.


How are we organized?
The Friends group is headed by a volunteer Board of Directors listed below. The Board meets monthly September through June and also holds an annual meeting each June. Board meetings are generally held in the Brooks Room of the Library and the public is invited to attend. A schedule of the meetings is posted at the Library.
