The Brookline Library Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Public Library of Brookline, is reaching out to our community with opportunities to contribute to our Library’s future. Over the past 20 years, funds raised by the Foundation have supported renovations, technology, books and materials, programs, museum passes, and more.

There are a variety of ways to contribute to the Foundation: as board members, as committee members for events, helping with outreach to the community, assisting with social media and technology usage, fundraising, and board development.

If you are interested in learning more about volunteering, please write to We’d love to get to know you better and talk it over!
