Libraries are the heart of a community. 

Our mission:

Friends of the Winthrop Public Library creates, builds and funds a vibrant public library as a community hub where we can

GATHER, CONNECT and DISCOVER.

By design and tradition, the public library is the essential civil society institution. Through the provision of space, information and inspiration it enables all the others.
