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.


The Friends of the Wareham Free Library are busy raising funds to help support the Library.

Our annual Holiday Fair is one of our major fundraisers! So when you make your rounds of the December 1 fairs in town, be sure to stop at the Main Library. We have our famous homemade cookies, craft vendors' items and gift-quality used books on sale. Great prices for a good cause!
