Friends of the Maynard Public Library
The Friends of the Maynard Public Library is a group dedicated to supporting the library. As an all-volunteer non-profit organization, we raise funds through our used book sales and annual memberships. With these funds, we expand the programs and services of the library. We're always looking for new members and volunteers!
Support the Friends when you shop
Here's an easy way to support the Friends and the library when you shop at Amazon. Start at this AmazonSmile site, and a portion of your purchase total will be donated to the Friends. You will be able to buy the same items at their regular prices. Bookmark this site and use it every time you shop!
Events and Programs
We hold a number of events throughout the year, including film series, Mystery Nights, musical performances, and many author readings. In April each year we present the Maynard Book Festival. Our events are all free and open to the public, and usually have very good refreshments! Click here to see our upcoming programs.

The Friends hold multiple books sales each year. In addition, we have an ongoing book sale shelf near the elevator in the library. Check back often, because these books go fast!

The Friends sponsor the library's museum pass program, which provides free or reduced admission to twenty local and Boston area museums, including the Discovery Museums in Acton and the Museum of Science and the New England Aquarium in Boston.
Your annual membership helps support library programs. As an added benefit, members are invited to a special dress rehearsal performance (at reduced admission price) of each play in Acme Theater's season. Members also receive an invitation to the Friday Night Book Sale, where they can shop before the general public. In addition, we hold Members-Only Appreciation Events with a dessert buffet and musical guests.
All members are welcome to attend our monthly planning meetings. These are held on the first Monday of each month at 7:00. Help us plan programs for the whole library.
