Help keep our library funded and accredited. Your donation will help “Bridge the Gap” between the town’s funding and what is required to operate the library at full capacity. The gap is roughly 20% of the library’s operating budget each year. Make your donation today by visiting our website or mailing a check to:
Wareham Library Foundation PO Box 485 East Wareham, MA 02538

Do you and your child reside in Wareham, and is your child between the ages of birth and 4.5 years old? Then your child may be eligible to join the Imagination Library! The program is open to ALL our children in that age group regardless of economic status as long as they reside in Wareham.
What is it? The Imagination Library is an early literacy program that is free and will mail one book to the child every month until the child turns five years old. The Friends raise donations for the program from very generous supporters, and Dolly Parton supplies the rest!
Studies show that children who are read to at an early age, are much better prepared for school than those that are not. Early childhood literacy is one of the goals of the Friends and of the Imagination Library!
Because it takes 8 to 10 weeks for books to arrive for children newly enrolled, the Friends can only enroll children from birth until they turn four and a half years old.
How do you enroll?? Fill out a form for your child when you visit the Library. You can enroll during open hours at the Main Library or at any one of our Used Book Sales. Forms are also available at the OBA office in Onset and outside the Town Clerk's office at Town Hall.
