Join a Library Support Group
The library enjoys the support of three support groups:
- The Friends of the Walpole Public Library, a 503c charity, run the ongoing book sale at the library. Proceeds of the book sale and membership fees are used to pay for many of the programs available at the library. To learn more and become a member click here.
- The Parent Advisory Board is a committee of the Friends of the Walpole Library. This volunteer group assists the library in developing children’s programs, crafts, and activities for the benefit of Walpole families and is always looking for input from parents and caregivers about what they’d like to see at the library. They typically meet once a month in the evenings and information can be found on their Facebook page.
- The Teen Advisory Board is a volunteer group of Walpole teenagers who meet monthly to contribute to teen services, programming, and collection development at the library.
