Giving to the Library
The library holds many examples of the generosity of our patrons and
the community: the bench outside our front doors donated in memory of
Leo Maki, the wooden rocking chair in the Reading Room in memory of
Harry Day, the garden along Newton Street, improved lighting,and many
books presented in memory of loved ones.
You can give to the library
in different ways, by becoming
by joining the Friends
of the Beaman Memorial Public
Library or by making a monetary
donation. We appreciate
each and every donation – more
than that, we rely on your generosity
to help us achieve our vision
to excel as the lifelong learning
and cultural center of our community,
to provide exemplary services
and to promote equal access
to information for all who enter
our doors. The Beaman Memorial
Public Library is a municipal
department of the Town of West
Boylston. Donations to the library
are tax deductible.
Gifts of Cash
Checks may be made out to the Beaman Memorial Public Library with the words “Gift Fund” written on the memo line. This money goes directly to the library and is used to supplement the operating budget for books and small furnishings, depending on current needs. The library will consider gifts in support of special projects and specific interests and larger contributions are gratefully accepted.
We welcome contributions to help us maintain our current collection of magazines and newspapers. You can pay for a subscription for a favorite magazine by calling Library Assistant, Sue Smith, at 508 835-3711. She will provide you with complete information about the program and aid you in your selection.
A fund for the purchase of books and other materials may be established in honor or memory of a person. A special bookplate will be placed in each item purchased from this fund. Donations targeted to larger projects such as the tall lights at the front of the library building serve as a wonderful recognition of loved ones. Please contact the Library Director, Louise Howland, at 508 835-3711 for more information.
