Support the Library

Friends of the Beverly Public Library

The Friends of the Beverly Public Library is a non-profit organization that helps support the services and programs of the Beverly Public Library. Through fundraising efforts such as book sales and membership drives, the Friends raise money for museum passes, popular programs for all ages, and library furnishings. The financial support of the Friends enables the library to do and have so much – from a 3D printer, to an engaging Monday Mornings lecture series, to fun and educational children’s programs throughout the year, and so much more.

Monetary Donations
The Beverly Public Library depends on the generosity of donors to fund things not included in the Library budget. Donations may be in the form of securities or cash. They may be outright gifts or they may be endowments or trust funds. All donations are expended under the direction of the Board of Library Trustees. All donations are tax deductible charitable contributions.

Volunteer Opportunities

Library volunteers help return books to the stacks and help check the correct placement of books on the shelves. Your commitment can be for as little as several hours a month to several hours a week.
