Give the Perfect Gift

Are you a frequent Cambridge Public Library user?  If you love the bright new environmentally friendly space of the Main Branch or have attended some of the author presentations, family programs or toddler sing-alongs offered at all of the branches, you can show your support for the library by renewing or becoming a first-time member of the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library. Think of it as a thank-you gift for the library.

The Friends is an organization on a mission: to promote interest in and support for the library’s many programs, resources, and needs. FCPL Board members will be in the lobby of the main branch on two upcoming weekends: December 10 from 11 to 5 pm; December 11 from 1 to 5 pm; December 17 from 11 to 5 pm; and December 18 from 1 to 5 pm.  If you are already a member, join us for cider and cookies and learn about the specific programs that your membership contribution supported this past year and about our plans for the coming year.  If not, join us anyway.  You might be surprised to learn just how much we do in support of the library.

If you're considering membership, you should also know that you'll not only be helping the library, you'll be helping yourself.  Members receive discounts at such local Cambridge venues as Actors Shakespeare Project; American Repertory Theater; Central Square Theater; Clothware; Harvard Coop; Dolphin Seafood; Follow the Honey; and Nomad Clothing, as well as entries for gift drawings at Crema Café; Games People Play and Porter Square Books. And did we mention your discount at Harvard Bookstore when printing a book by their in-store robot, Paige M. Gutenborg?

Give the library and yourself an early holiday present.  Stop by the FCPL table with your checkbook during these two successive December weekends, have a cookie, and renew or become a first-time member. While you're at it, buy a membership for a friend.  What a perfect holiday gift!

We look forward to chatting with you!  See you at the library.
