The Trustees and the Friends of the Beaman Memorial Public Library have jointly established The Endowment Fund to strengthen the future of our library. The Endowment Committee has partnered with Greater Worcester Community Foundation to manage our fund. Our Endowment is still in the growing phases, but its purpose is to go above and beyond the level of basic services required for state certification currently funded by the Town.
