Friends of the Library

A Little About Us…

The Mission of The Friends is to support quality library service in the community through fundraising, volunteerism and serving as advocates for the library and its programs to the public.
The Norwood Public Library has been serving the Norwood Community since 1979 and The Friends has been supporting the Library since 1995.

The Friends of the Norwood Library supports the Library in a variety of ways, and we would like you to be a part of it!

Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the privileges of information access, entertainment and education – which our library so cheerfully provides.

In this modern technological age, libraries must be able to offer new types of information, more programs and more services than in the past.
