The Wareham Library Foundation recently donated $24,000 to the Town of Wareham to offset the Wareham Library Director's salary. This is the third consecutive year the Foundation has done so. We believe in the importance of a strong Library Director; consequently, in the current fiscal difficulties the Town is experiencing, we have helped to support the Director's salary.

In addition, the Foundation donated $5000 to the Town for the Library to purchase books and materials. The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners requires a certain percentage of library funding to be spend on books and materials in order to qualify for certification.

The Library was decertified three years ago because it could not meet the other requirements of the Library Commission. However, thanks to the hard work over the past three years of our out-going Library Director, Michael Carlozzi, we look forward to becoming recertified this Fall.

Mark your calendars folks because the wait is over! The Friends will begin their monthly book sales again in March. We offer a wide variety of gently used books for all ages and in all genres. Prices begin at just 25 cents, and great bargains are to be had in all categories!

DONATIONS: We will also begin accepting donations again at the Main Library starting March 1st. Thank you to everyone who has been holding on to their donations over our winter hiatus. Please bring your clean, used books during the library's regular hours (see and leave them in the donation bin in the hallway. We cannot accept text books, encyclopedias, moldy books or magazines.

The sale takes place in the Meeting Room at the Wareham Free Library, 59 Marion Road, Wareham, MA.

More Than 300 Wareham Children Participate
The Friends are so proud to announce that the Imagination Library is one of our most successful early childhood literacy programs to date! Dolly Parton's Imagination Library allows the Friends to provide one free book per month to Wareham children ages birth to five mailed to their homes. The Friends must raise $25 per child per year, and Dolly's program provides the rest. We are grateful to all of the wonderful donors who help us to keep this program alive.
To make a donation to this program, mail your check to Friends of the WFL, P.O. Box 735, Wareham, MA 02571 and put Imagination Library in the Memo Line.
