Wareham Library Foundation donates $20,000 to the library

May 11, 2022

The Wareham Library Foundation donated $20,000 to the Wareham Free Library to cover part-time salaries. 

The Select Board voted on May 10 to accept the donation. 

“I’d just like to thank the Wareham Free Library Foundation,” said board member Alan Slavin. “They do this every year for us. It allows us to keep the library open and to have a little more assets than we normally would have.”

Board Chair Judith Whiteside added that the town’s budget for fiscal year 2023 includes an additional part-time staffer for the library. 

The Foundation will be hosting a comedy night on Saturday, June 11 to support their work. The event will be held at Stone Path Malt, 11 Kendrick Rd. Doors will open at 6 p.m., with the show starting at 7 p.m. The event will feature a pub menu, cash bar and silent auctions. Tickets cost $25.
