FRIENDS OF THE HOLLISTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Friends is a non-profit organization formed to benefit the Holliston Public Library. They provide support for programs and services not funded by the town budget including all programming, furniture, computer and office equipment, fax service, web site, books and magazines, etc. They also launch new services such as self-checkout and downloadable audiobooks. Their funding comes from memberships, fundraising, book sales, DVD rentals and gifts.
Becoming a Friend is the easiest, least expensive thing you can do to support your library. During tough financial times, the library needs Friends more than ever!
A form to join is available from the library or by clicking here. Payment may be made at the library or mailed to 752 Washington Street, Holliston, MA 01746.)

TD BANK AFFINITY PROGRAM
Help the library at no cost to you
The Friends participate in TD Bank's affinity program. The bank will donate to the Friends when you associate your new or existing account with them. No account information is shared with anyone and this association costs you nothing. You may associate your account in person at the bank or by emailing terry.smith@TD.com.
"Please associate all our TD Bank accounts with the Holliston Library under the new Affinity Program which has been established to benefit the library. I understand that the balances in our account(s) are not affected and no individual account information is shared in any way with the library. Thank you for administering this valuable program. John and Jane Library Patron"
The Friends need your donations of gently used books, CDs, audiobooks and movies. Unfortunately, the library has very little storage. If you have more than 10 items to donate, we ask you to use our drop-off box at Holliston Oil Company on Woodland Street across from the public schools. Sorry, no college textbooks, videos, cassettes, books in poor repair or magazines accepted.
A GIFT TO THE LIBRARY BENEFITS THE WHOLE COMMUNITY
Gifts of new books or non-print materials, furniture, equipment and funds for programs can be made in memory of a loved one, to honor a special person or to mark a happy event such as a birthday or anniversary. Contact the library director, Leslie McDonnell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
