Friends of the Fiske Library Mission Statement
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.
