Support the WFPL

Library Building Committee 
Help support library programs and services by purchasing books, movies, and CDs in our bookstore, in the Red Leaf Café. Your donations of gently used discards will help keep the shelves stocked. Donations are accepted any time the library is open - just drop them off at the main circulation desk. The only items we do not accept are VHS tapes, magazines, old computer books, and textbooks. 

The purpose of the Library Building Committee (LBC) is to manage the bookstore operation in the café in order to raise funds for library programs, resources, and services. In addition to selling donated books, the LBC offers library related items as well, including flash drives, headphones, and book bags.

The bookstore in The Café is now accepting donations for gently-used books, music and movies. Donated materials in good condition will be on sale in the Café and all proceeds will benefit the building fund. Please bring your donations for the café to the Circulation Desk during business hours. 

We are also looking for bookstore volunteers to help us sell books weekday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Please Call 617.972.6434 or email Natasha Ruggeri-Koret at for more information on becoming a volunteer.

You can also donate money online at Network for Good, an online company the WFPL works with that works to help raise money for non-profits. All funds go to our Library Building Committee.
