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. test

The 2018 Friends of Beebe Library Book Sale is now a wonderful memory.
Unfortunately, the Baptist Church where we held so many successful events is no more.

Annual Book Sale Space Requirements
FOBL has long raised much of its budget for Library support via a large annual book sale at a single centrally located first floor low-cost site. Books have been stored gratis at a single also largely first floor and continuously accessible for delivery, sorting, and removal. Sadly, the sale site, the First Baptist Church, burned down in October 2018, and owners of the storage site have long since asked the Friends to find an alternative(s). If the FOBL continues with the large book sale fundraising model, space must be found for book storage and for the sale itself.
