Friends of the Fitchburg Public Library


Purpose


The Friends of the Fitchburg Public Library (FPL) establish closer relations between the library and the people it serves, promotes support of services, and funds several important services such purchasing books for the library and the fees for the museum passes.

The Friends work with area museums to bring you Museum Passes you can use to visit exhibits for reduced fees. 

FRIENDS ANNUAL MEETING, WEDNESDAY JUNE 26, 6 P.M.

Join us for a showing of the new documentary "The Life and Gardens of Beatrix Farrand," who studied with the founding director of the Arnold Arboretum and became one of the first women landscape architects.
Following the movie, the Friends will host a PLANT SWAP.  Share your pest-free transplants and cuttings and take home something new!
