Become a Library Friend Today

Our Cambridge Public Library is the center of community activity nearly every day of the year. With family activities, educational programs, staff who know their stuff, book discussion groups, author events, and even archivists to help discover a sought-after nugget of lost family history, there's a lot to appreciate about our library and neighborhood branches.

This holiday season, show your gratitude for the library by renewing your membership or becoming a first-time member of the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library. 

The Friends is an organization dedicated to promoting interest in the library and supporting the library's many programs and resources that it provides to the Cambridge community. Come to the library this weekend to meet a Friend and sign up in person. Board members of the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library will be at the main branch in the afternoons Saturday, Dec. 7th and Sunday, Dec. 8th to sign up new and renewing members and to share information about the Friends. Bring your checkbook or cash to join on the spot at the library this weekend and receive The Book Lover's 2014 Calendar FREE!

If you're considering membership, you'll not only be helping the library, you'll also receive discounts at several local Cambridge retailers and theaters. Find out more about the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library and how to become a member here. And be sure to keep up with the Friends on Facebook too.
