Your Library Needs You!

Looking for ways to get more involved with our great Cambridge Public Library? Here is your chance to show your support for the library in an active and engaged role: The Friends of the Cambridge Public Library (FCPL) is looking for two new Board members.

Currently, the Board has a particular need for individuals who can help us with publicity; with maintaining our Facebook page and our blog, or with recruiting and coordinating volunteers.

The FCPL has a busy and exciting year ahead. In addition to its regular activities, the Friends will be organizing its biennial fundraiser, the Secret Gardens of Cambridge, in June, and is planning to publish a cookbook in October 2014, also in support of the Library.

The FCPL is an organization whose mission is to promote interest in and support for the library's programs, resources, and needs. Its Board members are library lovers who meet monthly from September to June to plan programs that further the Friends’ mission. Board members are expected to give several hours of their time beyond the monthly meetings. Board tasks include - but are not limited to - planning the biennial Secret Gardens Tour; writing and editing the Friends newsletter; supporting the annual membership drive; helping run author series and other ongoing events.

If you have any of the above interests or skills, please consider joining the Board.

For more information or to express your interest, contact cambridgelibraryfriends@gmail.com. Or, call the main library at 617-349-4032 and tell them you are interested in working on the Board. A response before September 6th, 2013 is greatly appreciated, but the Board will consider applications after this date. Read more about the Friends here or visit us on Facebook.
