The Library Foundation of Needham, established by the Needham Free Public Library Board of Trustees, is a permanent fund to support enhancements beyond the library's budget. The LFN makes resources available beyond the town-funded budget for building enhancements, technology, equipment, library materials, services, and programs for all ages and interests.

Our Misson

  • Encourage community investment through individual and corporate giving for Library programs and services not covered by the town-funded budget.

  • Coordinate fundraising and promotional activities to increase the endowment and responsibly manage and grow the funds.

  • Grant funds to library departments based on their proposals for programs, materials, and facility enhancements.
