The Friends encourage all to be library advocates by support local, state, and federal library legislation.  Visit the Massachusetts Library Association’s legislative action site to easily contact your legislators.

The Friends believe that the Library is a community and cultural center for Wayland residents of all ages.

The Friends play an important role in supporting and expanding the services available to Wayland adults and children through fundraising efforts.

The Friends also work to increase community awareness and use of the Library.

The Friends hope to preserve the Library's tradition of outstanding service and to support the continued growth of a strong, responsive library.
