Friends of the Bedford Library ("The Friends")

About the Friends

The Friends of the Bedford Library is a volunteer group that provides supplementary services and materials to our Library. The Friends host concerts and our contributions have purchased a Kindle, the trains in the Children's area, supplies for the summer reading program, and annual passes to Canterbury Shaker Village, the Currier Museum of Art, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, New England Aquarium, Seacoast Science Center, and Squam Lakes Natural Science Center.

All that we provide is available for use by all Bedford Public Library cardholders. We have approximately 80 members and we thank you for your support.

Volunteers wanted for the Friends of the Bedford Library

Please consider joining The Friends, a non-profit all volunteer group that devotes its time to supporting the library. We have one fundraiser a year and that is our annual pie (and baked goods) sale held the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

We are seeking volunteers who would be interested in helping out with some of the many services The Friends provide, including: membership drives, museum passes, fundraisers, newsletters, and library book bags.

Meetings are held at the Library at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month, from September through May.
