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 is spearheading this effort and has partnered with Greater Worcester Community Foundation to manage our fund. The Endowment will in no way supplant the tax-based funding which every year keeps our doors open. What the Endowment can do is make the difference between basic services and the level of service, hours and resources that the people of West Boylston deserve. All donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
