Join The Friends

Support the Cambridge Public Library by becoming a Friend or renewing your membership.

This year, our goal is to raise $90,000 through memberships, donations, events, and book sales. Individual donations to the Friends, most $100 or less, go a long way. We have a volunteer staff, so costs are kept to a minimum.

Suggested membership is $25, but we welcome any level of support. Your membership donation is tax-deductible and membership lasts for one year.

Join or renew your membership online using your credit card >>


We are growing a volunteer program to help with library and Friends’ activities, including the Secret Garden Tour. Please indicate your interest in volunteering on the membership form or contact us to learn more about volunteer opportunities.


Cambridge Cooks was created by the Friends and includes recipes from some of our favorite local restaurants. 100% of the proceeds go directly to library programs we sponsor. Purchase a cookbook online >>
