Why We Do It
"I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card."
- Laura Bush

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.

Charitable Giving to the LFN >

Our fundraising is ongoing. Help us support our Library's many special programs, events, services and other needs with a financial donation to the LFN Endowment. Every donation helps us continue to make our community library the best it can be.


Copies of our brochure with a donation envelope are available at the Circulation Desk in the library. Checks payable to the Library Foundation of Needham may be mailed to PO Box 920166, Needham, MA 02492.
