Friends of the Brookline Public Library (FBPL)

Who are the Friends?  We are a group of people whose mission is to support the Library.  We supplement the official Library budget by providing funds for museum passes, helping to pay for the Summer Reading Program, and providing various other programs or purchases as needs arise.  We raise the funds with which to do this, and are a 501(c)(3) organization.  We work hard and have fun
