Friends of Fiske

Friends of the Fiske Library Mission Statement
11/2016

The Friends of the Fiske Public Library is a non-profit organization established in 1977.  The Friends are dedicated to raising funds to purchase equipment and materials that the library town budget would not otherwise be able to support.  They fund special programs and museum/zoo passes to encourage community participation for adults and children. The Friends are governed by an Executive Board that meets in the library meeting room, the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm, September through June.  

Who is a Friend of the Fiske Library?
A Friend of the Fiske Library is a person or family that contributes to our annual appeal fundraiser.  A mailing is sent to each Wrentham household (Fall) for new and renewing membership.  Patrons may sign up at any time of the year.

How can I help the Friends of the Fiske Library?
The Friends are always looking for book donations. Donations of clean, gently used books for our ongoing and yearly book sales may be dropped off in the library lobby during regular business hours.  Kindly do not leave books outside the door when the library is closed.
We do not accept the following:
•    Books missing covers
•    Books that have water damage or odor
•    Encyclopedias and textbooks
•    Books with yellowed, aging pages
•    VHS movies
•    Magazines (those can be left at the front desk for the free magazine swap; current publications please)

Interested in joining the Friends of the Fiske? Stop by the library and pick up a brochure with the form and all the information you might need.

Anything brought in that can not be used in the library collection (replacements for worn copies or titles not owned) or for the booksale will be put in the "RECYCLETHAT" (formerly Got Books) bin located in the library parking lot. They give to assorted charities as well as the recycling effort. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Fiske and the library so thanks for helping!
