Who are The Friends?

The Friends of the Wadleigh Memorial Library is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization lending support to the Library in various capacities.

We also use your contributions to provide free or discounted admission passes to a number of regional museums, including Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Zoo New England, as well as local museums such as Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art.
