Hello and welcome to the Friends of the Medford Public Library! We are a group of volunteers who love books, our library, and our community, and we're happy you're here!
Our primary purpose is to raise funds to support library programs and activities and to act as a voice of support for the library and its services. Check out our About pages for more information on us and our operations.
Please feel free to drop us a note at email@example.com. Find us on Facebook too (see below).
Thank you and see you at the library!
Our New Logo
Dear FMPL members and community,
Say hello to our new look! We are excited to unveil this logo just in time for the new building. It represents all that we are and strive to be: friendly, welcoming, as much about people as about books, a vibrant community, and a true supporter and part of the library.
We selected colors inspired by the library's new logo and by all the colorful books on our shelves; a graphic that perfectly melds the library's new logo, books of all types, and people of all ages; and a sense of the beautiful new library itself. Look closely--you'll see the curves at the "shoulders" of the people resemble the curves in the new building's roof, which in turn evoke Medford's ship building history. With this new look, we welcome you to the new library building and our own new space!
