Become a Friend of the Library

logo-friendsJoin the Friends to become more involved in your public library and to make new friends!

Our Friends group is one of the largest and most active in the state. They organize and execute an enormous book sale each fall that raises over $20,000 each year. The Friends are awesome! Their support makes possible educational, cultural, art and music programs for adults and children, as well as museum passes, computer workstations, equipment, and furniture for both the Anna C. MacKay Branch and the Main Library.

Our Friends are a mix of young and old, residents and non-residents  who dedicate time and energy to enhance programs and services at CPL. Membership in the Friends adds your name to the Friends email newsletter list and it allows non-Chelmsford residents to use the library’s museum passes (which are funded by the Friends).

Here are some common ways members participate in the Friends:

  • Help with the Annual Book Sale
    • Collect/sort books prior to the sale
    • Setup the night before the sale
    • Cashier/stock tables during the sale
    • Online Book Sale
  • Help with 4th of July Activities
    • Join the 4th of July committee
    • Work the booth at the 4th of July fair
    • Sell raffle tickets
  • Help Throughout the Year
    • Assist with mailings
    • Data entry using Microsoft Excel/Word
    • Assist with Special Events
