Friends are those residents who regard the library as a vital information and cultural center and a major educational institution. Through a program of volunteer, promotional and fundraising activities, the Friends support and promote the Attleboro Public Library and finance purchases not covered by government funds.

The Friends is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.

You can support the Friends of the Attleboro Public Library by becoming a friend yourself, or by making a donation of money or materials. The Friends meet on the first Wednesday of every month in the library’s trustee room.

There is also a Junior Friends chapter of the Friends of the Attleboro Public Library.

The Junior Friends is a group of student volunteers promoting the Attleboro Library by assisting with programs, creating decorations and keeping the community aware of the Library’s offerings. Students are welcome to join this spirited group of Library supporters as we find new ways to make the Library a vibrant part of our community! Junior Friends do not pay dues.
