Welcome to the
Friends of Beebe Library Website
Scroll down for the latest announcements!
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.
Thanks for making 2023 Book Sale a Big Success!
