August 17: Books for Teachers
@ Hurd School 4-8pm
The Friends of Beebe Library welcome all teachers to come to the Hurd School (27 Cordis Street in Wakefield) and take books that will help their students in the upcoming school year. We know that teachers often spend their own money to bring books to the classrooms, and we invite them to attend and choose books that will incite their students to enjoy reading. We have many children's books available (board books, picture books, early readers, chapter books, non-fiction). Teachers may also choose from the Young Adult section and the (adult) fiction and non-fiction categories: history, biography, cooking, fine arts, religion, science & health, diet & exercise, sports, and travel
August 20: Wakefield Farmers Market
Once again, the Friends of Beebe Library will be giving back to the Wakefield community at Farmers Market. August 20th will be the final date you can visit our tent for the season. Donations are very welcome, but we hope that all local residents come and grab something for their summer reading.
The Friends of Beebe Library, a non-profit, community-based group, was formed in 1972 to provide support for special activities, services and initiatives of the Wakefield, MA public library. Hundreds of your neighbors support the Friends through dues and as volunteers.
Believing that free access to information and ideas is fundamental to an enlightened community, the Friends of Beebe Library enhance and promote our Library's role by:
Sponsoring programs compatible with the Library's cultural, educational and recreational role in the community.
Raising and providing funds for services, equipment and activities beyond the scope of the operating budget of the Beebe Library. For example, we fund the summer reading programs, musueum passes, and we provided the seed money for the DVD collection at the Beebe Library and help fund the Business Center as well.
