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. As a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN: 22-2581040) your contribution to the Friends of the Fiske may be tax-deductible.
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
• Books with yellowed, aging pages
• VHS movies
• Magazines (those can be left at the front desk for the free magazine swap; current publications please)
The Friends of the Fiske sponsored a scholarship for graduating high school seniors from Wrentham, regardless of the high school they attend. Applicants were asked to submit an essay about a book they read that resonated with them. Scholarships were awarded to Brooke Lynch, Peyton Mellman, and Andrew Pham, all graduating seniors at King Philip Regional High School. Congratulations from the Friends!
Ongoing Book Sale
Be sure to check out the ongoing Friends' book sale rack at the front of the library near the Circulation Desk and along the back wall near the craft and puzzle swap areas. Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Fiske and the library, so thanks for helping!
