Friends of the Library
Support the Library by Becoming a Friend!
By becoming a Friend, you join a valued group of donors who make an impact on the Medfield Public Library and the community it serves. Your annual support sustains programs and services that otherwise may not exist. We can’t do it without you!
You may donate online and become a Friend by clicking on button below and filling out our online membership form. We also accept one-time gifts and business donations.
If you wish to pay by check, click button below to print out our paper form and return to the Library. Copies of the form are also available at the Circulation Desk!
The volunteer-run Friends Bookstore in the library is a community favorite for patrons to buy donated books and other items at deeply discounted prices. The bookstore is currently closed for browsing, but we are offering Surprise Grab Bags available for purchase in the library.
It’s easy: 1) pick up any sealed Surprise Grab Bag that includes various curated books, 2) give your payment to the librarian. Bags are priced as marked by genre and price – $5 (4 books included) and $10 (8 books included). Each bag offers a mixture of donated paperback and hardcover books that has been thoughtfully selected by our Bookstore Manager based on genre (general fiction, biography, romance, etc.). All books have been set aside for at least 72 hours before packed in the bag. Please bring exact change or a check. All proceeds go to the library to support services and programs.
Interested in donating gently used books, dvds, cds, puzzles, or games? Please call the library ahead of time and the library staff will give you more information.
