The Friends of Beebe Library, a non-profit, community-based group, was formed in 1972 to provide support for special activities, services and initiatives of the Wakefield, MA public library. Hundreds of your neighbors support the Friends through dues and as volunteers.

Believing that free access to information and ideas is fundamental to an enlightened community, the
Friends of Beebe Library enhance and promote our Library's role by:

  • • Sponsoring programs compatible with the Library's cultural, educational and recreational role
        in the community.
  • • Raising and providing funds for services, equipment and activities beyond the scope of the
        operating budget of the Beebe Library. For example, we provided the seed money for the DVD collection at the  Beebe Library and help fund the Business Center as well.
