Informal Friends Meeting

Whitinsville Social Library's Friends group has been defunct for several years. Interested in reviving it? Please attend this informal meeting to get together with other potential Friends to discuss your goals. 

"How important are Friends groups? They can literally make the difference between a budget increase and cut for their libraries. Since the beginning of the American library movement, Friends groups have been formed by citizens using their collective powers to do everything from running a book sale to ensuring that our American library legacy remains viable. By contributing as a library Friend, you can make a lasting difference for your library."  More info on Friends Groups here.
