Thank you to all who have donated Legos or given special donations for us to buy Legos.  We are always looking for more Legos so we can have more children be involved in this fun and creative activity.    We can always use more Green and Blue plates or other building platforms.

Thank You From The Friends Co-presidents!

Friends of the Medway Library would like to thank all those who helped this fall to support the library.  Our volunteers spent months sorting books and tending to the book and raffle sales.  Their commitment and hard work made our October Book Sale and raffle a success. 

In addition, numerous businesses have contributed to Friends programs and raffles. We would like to acknowledge Cassidy's Clubhouse, Anthony Maki of Franklin Country Club, Starbucks, Regal Cinema, AdPrint, Whole Foods, Panera, and Roche Brothers.  We also appreciate all the local businesses that allow us to display flyers.

Friends of The Medway Library in the News

Check out the latest article about the Friends from the Millis/Medway paper....

Friends Raises $18,000 for the Medway Library
      The Friends of the Medway Library has long been a library supporter, and this year this group of volunteers was able to raise $18,000.  Co-presidents  Meg Hamilton and Diane Busa presented a check at the June meeting of the trustees .
     Meg Hamilton told the trustees, “We’re proud of our efforts, but we never know from year to year how much we can give to the library.  We’ve raised so much money this time only because more people donated books, volunteered to help, and came to our sales.  I think this is an indication of how committed people are to support the Medway Library.”
      The Friends raises money that is used for materials or programs not funded by the library’s operating budget.   According to Library Director Margaret Perkins, “A third of the books and other materials that the library has added this year were purchased using the funds donated by The Friends.”   The donations also helped finance the update of the library website for patrons to more easily access on-line services.
     Most of the money was raised from The Friends very popular book sales in May and October.  Additionally, Friends has an ongoing sale across from the circulation desk with almost new, special interest books for adults and children.  A favorite of the patrons is the red Beach Reads cart; all paperback books are only $1.  This year non-fiction and young adult books have been added.
     The Friends does more than just raise money for the library.  They obtain museum and zoo passes which offer free or discounted rates for patrons.  The group also sponsors the Gingerbread Festival, free monthly children’s and family movies, as well as a Lego Club. 
      Diane Busa stated, “We couldn’t be happier with the turnout at our programs.  The last movie we screened had 100 people and the room is always filled during the Lego Club.  The Friends also has become involved with the high school honor society and community service groups who help the younger children.”
       Friends supports other Medway non-profits such as the Community Farm, Girl Scouts, Friends of the Performing Arts and various high school clubs by offering them free tables at the book sale events.
       The Friends has helped the library become a vibrant community resource.  There are so many ways to become involved.  For more information about programs, donating books and becoming a member, check the website:

The Friends want to thank everyone who participated in our fund raising events (becoming a friend, renewing memberships, May & Oct Books Sales, the Ongoing book sale, etc).  Every penny helps the Library and we would not have had such a successful year without a strong community.
