Friends of the Beaman Library logo

The Friends is a group of citizens of West Boylston and other towns who understand the importance of library service to the community. They work in a variety of ways to help improve the library by providing funding for programming, technology, the Museum Pass Program and other expenses not covered in the municipal budget. They also  are important advocates for the library. 

Friends membership dues and the Friends Annual Book Sale are the primary forms of income for this endeavor. We encourage you to join or renew your membership to The Friends. Membership runs from January through December each year. Non-resident Friends members gain an added benefit of being able to reserve museum passes in advance. Show your support for the Library and Join the Friends today!

The Friends Book Sale is Coming!
