The Wareham Library Foundation recently donated $24,000 to the Town of Wareham to offset the Wareham Library Director's salary. This is the third consecutive year the Foundation has done so. We believe in the importance of a strong Library Director; consequently, in the current fiscal difficulties the Town is experiencing, we have helped to support the Director's salary.

In addition, the Foundation donated $5000 to the Town for the Library to purchase books and materials. The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners requires a certain percentage of library funding to be spend on books and materials in order to qualify for certification.

The Library was decertified three years ago because it could not meet the other requirements of the Library Commission. However, thanks to the hard work over the past three years of our out-going Library Director, Michael Carlozzi, we look forward to becoming recertified this Fall.
 




Don't miss our annual Holiday Fair fundraiser on Saturday December 7 from 9 am to 1:00 pm at the Wareham Free Library! As always, we will have plenty of home-made cookies from our members. Several local crafters will be offering their wares, and the Friends will have their special table of gifts as well.
 
Gift-quality used books will also be on sale from the Friends' collection that they have been saving for the Fair during the year. Support the Library while you do some early Christmas shopping!
