Spring 2018 Update

Friends of the Williamsburg Libraries presented This Spring the Friends once again received a grant from the Florence Bank Customers’ Choice Community Grant Program.  We received our largest grant yet - $4,100!  Thanks so much to all the community members who voted for our organization and to Florence Bank for supporting local groups that make a difference in the Pioneer Valley.

Who Are The Friends?
The Friends of the Williamsburg Libraries, Inc. is a volunteer group that has raised money to support the Libraries since 1986. The Friends hold membership drives, raffles, book sales, and support community events.

We spearheaded the fundraising for the 2003 library addition, writing grants, letters of appeal, and thousands of thank you notes! With donated money, the Friends assist with supplemental maintenance and improvements not included in the Town's library budget, like automatic door openers and cost increases for the installation of air conditioning. The Friends also purchase books, fund the Summer Reading Program, supplement grants for performers, artists, and musicians, buy furniture, and host events.
