Friends of the Brookline Library

About

The Friends is a non-profit organization formed more than thirty years ago to foster close relations between the Brookline Public Library and its users. We support the Library’s staff and services in order to enhance patron experiences. In addition to running an ongoing used book sale, our activities include sponsoring educational and cultural programming for adults, teens and children, conducting ESL-related classes, promoting Library staff development, and partnering with other organizations to benefit the community at large.
