Friends of the Harvard Public Library
This is the main fundraising event for the Friends. Funds have been used most recently to help fund the online Consumer Reports subscription. We have helped build the new library, to buy computer equipment, purchase museum passes, provide children’s programs and produce events organized by the Harvard Friends of the Arts. We recently instituted a new scholarship to honor Dr. Jeff Harris. Thank you for your support!
