Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Maynard Public Library is a group dedicated to supporting the library. As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, we raise funds through our used book sales and annual memberships. With these funds, we expand the programs and services of the library. We're always looking for new members and volunteers!

Support the Friends when you shop
Here's an easy way to support the Friends and the library when you shop at Amazon. Start at this AmazonSmile site, and a portion of your purchase total will be donated to the Friends. You will be able to buy the same items at their regular prices. Bookmark this site and use it every time you shop!

Events and Programs
We hold a number of events throughout the year, including an annual film series, a Mystery Night and many author readings. We're also planning our third Maynard Book Festival for Spring 2014. Our events are all free and open to the public, and usually have very good refreshments! Click here to see our upcoming programs.

Book Sales
Our book sales for 2014 will be on a Saturday near the end of the school year and on the Saturday of Maynard Fest in October. In addition, we have an ongoing book sale shelf near the elevator. Check back often, because these books go fast!
Read more about book sales and how to donate books.

Museum Passes
The Friends sponsor the library's museum pass program, which provides free or reduced admission to sixteen local and Boston area museums, including the Discovery Museums in Acton and the Museum of Science and the New England Aquarium in Boston.

Your annual membership helps support library programs. As an added benefit, members are invited to a special dress rehearsal performance (at reduced admission price) of each play in Acme Theater's season. Members receive an invitation to the Friday Night Book Sale, where they can shop before the general public. In fall 2013, we also had a Members Only Appreciation Event with a dessert buffet and musical guests.

All members are welcome to attend our monthly planning meetings. These are held on the first Monday of each month at 7:00 at the library. Help us plan programs for the whole library.
