Friends of the Library

MEDFIELD PUBLIC LIBRARY FRIENDS LogoFriends of the Medfield Library

The Friends of the Medfield Library were founded to stimulate broader community interest in library resources and encourage participating in library activities.

With funds from the annual membership drive and book sales, the Friends are able to provide approximately $20,000 in funding to the library annually. In the recent past, these funds were used for:

Museum passes  |  Children’s programs  |  Adult programs  |  Book purchases  |  Music programs
Self-Checkout stations  |  Refreshments for exam nights  |  Shelving  |  Book carts  |  Books on CD
DVDs  |  Software programs  |  Large print books  | Creative Writing Awards  |  And more

Residents of Medfield are invited to join the Friends of the Library. Your membership dues will greatly enrich and promote the library. Please pick up a membership form at the library front desk or email us at medfieldlibraryfriends@gmail.com.

The Friends Bookstore

The Friends Bookstore is located on the lower level of the library and is open whenever the library is. The store has a wide selection of like-new books for all ages and interests, with new titles added weekly.

Most books are priced from 50 cents to $2.00. And those low prices are slashed in half the last Saturday of every month!

Every dollar spent at The Friends Bookstore stays at the library, helping to strengthen its programs and collections.

To volunteer or donate recent books in good to excellent condition, please ask at the front desk of contact the Friends at medfieldlibraryfriends@gmail.com.
