Friends of the Library/Whipple Free Library Foundation

Giving to the Whipple Free Library

Friends of the Whipple Free Library

The Friends of the Whipple Free Library is a non-profit organization begun by Beulah Hayes in 1966 to improve the library’s services, resources, and its role in the community. They provide essential support to the library.

The Friends, though its fund-raising projects, was able to contribute significantly to the Hayes-Warren addition, and more recently the New Library Campaign.  Other ways in which the group has been involved in enhancing the library and community include:

-the purchase of Museum Passes
-the purchase of special volumes and equipment
-the annual Wassail celebration

The organization hopes to continue to expand its role through such fundraising projects as:

– the annual Auction
– the annual Book Sale
– landscaping and gardening the library grounds

New members are encouraged to join the Friends in providing even greater contributions to the residents of New Boston through the Whipple Free Library. Please contact Candy Woodbury, President at 487-2634 for more information.

Whipple Free Library Foundation

The Whipple Free Library Foundation is a 501 (C) (3) organization that was originally formed to raise private funds for the building of the current Whipple Free Library. The purpose of the Foundation now is to fund the capital needs of the Library to ensure that all patrons have access to information and that the library has the infrastructure to serve its patrons in the best ways possible.

Recent examples of items funded by the foundation are:

*A larger book drop with a separate place for videos
*Black out shades in the Russell Room for daytime media use
*Additional shelving for Teen Area and DVDs
*New Technology Upgrades

Your tax free donation to the Foundation will ensure that your gift to the library will be used to enhance the learning and community experiences of New Boston citizens.
