Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Hazen Memorial Library was formed in 1996 to promote awareness of the Library's services and programs, raise funds for great library programs and passes to area museums.

Have you been thinking about doing something to give back to the community? Are you looking for a volunteer activity that leaves you fulfilled and involves a flexible time commitment? Join the Friends! The Friends raise funds through the annual membership campaign, the Holiday Fair, the book sale in the lobby, cookbook, notecard, and tote bag sales.

Visit the front desk and pick up a Friends membership form, call the library at 978-425-2620, or e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
