A message from our Foundation President:

To the residents of Boylston:

As President of the Boylston Public Library Foundation, Inc. (BPLF), I appreciate your generous support of our Annual Appeal. We combined forces with the BPL Friends of the Library for a successful fundraising campaign. The BPLF has been the fundraising entity for the Boylston Public Library since 1973. Our Board of Directors augments the financial needs of the library and ongoing services. We are dedicated to the financial support of upcoming library projects. We have a robust Corporators list of library “superfans” who are the foundation of our 501c3 organization.

The BPLF continues to meet during the pandemic and approve much-needed adjacent items and services for the library. Since the Fall, the BPLF has approved $4,500 in furniture for the Young Adult and Children’s sections in the library. We also strengthened a subscription to Overdrive Advantage, allowing Boylston residents to receive priority loans on hundreds of titles. Recently, we funded an architect to develop a plan with the Library Trustees to improve the BPL’s exterior.

The staff miss your faces, and they have been working hard to make many services available remotely.

Contactless pickup is now available Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm.

I am so proud of our small-town library. We continue to do BIG things virtually. You can participate in adult book clubs, participate in multiple children’s programs, learn how to write the next great American novel, or even search for your family history.

 

NEW! Consumer Reports Online subscription available.

NEW! High-powered Wifi access is now available to the library’s exterior.

Please see the BPL website for details: http://www.boylstonlibrary/.org

Call 508-869-2371 or order your books/materials online.

Thank you for your continued support. We cannot wait until we can welcome you back into our beautiful space.

 

Sincerely,
Christina Stille,

BPLF President
