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.

We are growing a volunteer program to help with library and Friends’ activities, including the Secret Garden Tour. Please fill out our volunteer interest form or contact us to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
