Friends of the Monson Free Library Bake Sale

Join us for our monthly bake sale! We have an assortment of delicious baked goods made by our volunteers!

The Friends of the Monson Free Library support the Library in bringing quality, specialized programs to your community! They have sponsored author’s visits, aided in updating the Library’s collection, and have provided financial resources for basic requests that just don’t fall into the Library’s day-to-day budget.

The Friends are able to accomplish all of this through the ongoing support of their membership and fundraising efforts. As a member of the Friends, you offer your support to these vital programs, and you are welcome to join us in planning special events and helping out at fundraisers. We staff a booth annually at the Monson Arts Council Craft Fair and we participate in Summerfest parade. Throughout the year, Friends provide refreshments and support to special events held at the Library.

Contact MFL if you would like to know more about becoming a member!
