About the Friends

The Friends of the Westborough Public Library, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that was formed to support the programs and services of the Westborough Public Library. (Bylaws and mission statement are available online, or print copies can be provided by request.)

The Friends of the Westborough Public Library meet quarterly at the library. Please check the Friends’ Facebook page or the library calendar for meeting dates and times. Copies of meeting minutes are available by request from the Friends and are emailed to members.

Funds raised by book sales are used by the Friends to support the library and its programs and services. The Friends currently provide the majority of funds for library programming and many of the museum passes/discounts available to Westborough Public Library patrons.

New members are always welcome. We hope you will join us in supporting our library.

For more information on becoming a member please pick up a membership form and a Friends’ brochure at the library. We would also be happy to send you this information. Just email us at friendsowpl@gmail.com
