Friends in the News

MEDWAY -- This year, the Friends of the Medway Public Library group was able to give more than $17,000 to the Medway Library for new materials and future programs as well as museum passes despite not having its annual May book sale.

The Friends also worked with Ghost Story Games, a self-publishing game studio owned by Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., to purchase two new workstations for the Makerspace. The company donated $3,000 as part of their community outreach program.

In addition, the Friends of the Medway Library helped secure funds from community businesses and organizations for a free summer lunch program for children, along with their caregivers and teens. The Friends offer thanks to the Medway Lions Club, Medway Oil and Propane Inc, Restaurant 45, Stop & Shop, Shaw’s, Walgreens, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Mahan Food Pantry, Roche Bros., Market Basket & Uno Pizzeria & Grill for supplying food and monetary donations.

The Friends do more than raise money for the Library. The group in the past has hosted programs such as the monthly Lego Club, the annual Gingerbread Festival, and summer movies. The Friends also supply free books as part of the library’s summer reading program, as well as a book giveaway on Halloween.
