    About Us

    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.

    Mission
    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.
