Every two years, the Secret Gardens of Cambridge tour uncovers secret gardens in neighborhoods all across the city and invites our friends and neighbors to take a peek! Over the years, the tour has featured more than 200 individual gardens in Cambridge. Learn more here.
In this original theater piece, attendees saw and heard what is going on in urban high schools by listening to the voices of students, and the educators who work with them, describing the effects of opportunity gaps and implicit bias in their everyday lives.

The Friends sponsored a fun music event in the summer of 2017. An engaging local musical group called "What She Said" played popular songs from the '70's, '80's, and '90's to a wide range of members and the public. The event, originally planned for the Library lawn, was held on the 3rd Floor due to rain. Ice cream and cookies were also served.
The 2016 Secret Garden Tour was a huge success! Despite the overcast weather, proceeds and participation set a record high.
