Attend an Event

Along will our Annual Fall Appeal the Wellesley Free Library Foundation hosts several events throughout the year to raise the private funds necessary to ensure our library remain a leader among libraries in Massachusetts. Attending an event is a great way to get involved and support the WFL!
