The Friends is a group of library enthusiasts who run our great book sale (pictured above), organize public events, volunteer their time, and raise money to help fund special library programs and services. Thanks to your donations (of/for books or simply $ to the friends), we have had a summer full of great friends funded childrens programs at all three branches.

Annually SISTER CITY Month is FEBRUARY. In 2013 our booksale proceeds of $1500 was sent to the Quezalguaque, Nicaragua Library for buying new books. We sponsor English Conversation Groups (Grupos de la Conversacion) and are the proud sponsors of the Brookline Poetry Series. If you prefer to donate or join the friends online, click
