The Friends of the East Brookfield Library is a service organization dedicated to helping the library. They are a group of dedicated people who love and support the library and who believe that a quality library is an essential part of the community. Their ongoing yearly support enables the library to continue its wide range of programming and museum passes. The group provides financial support to pay for the expense of supplies and equipment beyond funding provided by local, regional and state government agencies.

The Friends are always looking for new members and hope you will consider joining.

Today’s library is more important than ever
and your library has become the heart of the community

People come for many reasons: group meeting place, job searching, learning and information, introducing children to reading, cost savings (borrow books, movies and magazines), school readiness, recreation, programs & workshops, self help materials (gardening, parenting, ‘fix it yourself ‘, art/hobby), a quiet spot to read or study, see original art by local artists, tax forms, photocopy and fax, e-mail, job search and more!
