From Friends of the Franklin Library
From the Friends… We are having an exciting and productive fall and want to share with you what we've been up to.
Friends in the Community: We really enjoyed being out and about in October and meeting so many wonderful people in the community. Our booth at the Franklin Harvest Festival was a hit and besides meeting new friends, we gave out over 400 free books to community members! We hope all are enjoying your "new to you" books. 
Just a couple weeks ago, we had two gift baskets up for grabs as part of the Franklin Health Department's Fall Health Fair. Congratulations to Emily H. who won the We Love Downtown Franklin! basket (filled with great items & gift cards from downtown Franklin small businesses) and to the Tracey family who took home the Halloween Bucket of Fun! (filled with fun, seasonal activities & a local bookstore gift card).
Looking Ahead: The Friends are excited to be supporting the upcoming teen program, Comics 4 Culture, on Saturday, November 19 th from 3:00-4:00pm. This workshop, developed and presented by a Massachusetts high school student, is a fun and creative way to explore with teens that there is more than one story/perspective when it comes to heroes and comics. We hope all participants will leave this event empowered and confident to share their own stories through comics. 
While we have your attention, have you noticed the new outdoor patio space at the Library? The Friends are thrilled to be purchasing tables and chairs for this new outdoor gathering area to be enjoyed by library patrons and staff. Grab a book and enjoy the scenery. 
Phew! As we said, we've been busy! Would you like to become a Friend and support these special causes? Your membership dues and contributions are tax deductible and help us support the Franklin Public Library's collections and programs, including our fall activities and purchases outlined above. 
Join us Wednesday, November 2 nd at 7:00pm for our next monthly meeting. We welcome new ideas and new Friends!   If you can't attend on November 2nd but would like more information about joining the Friends of the Franklin Library, email for a copy of our membership brochure.
