Worcester Free Public Library

What You Can do

Make a Gift

The Worcester Public Library has been an outstanding resource for the residents of Worcester and Worcester County since 1859. It offers the newest materials, historical documents, computerized services and free programs at its three locations. Private and corporate donations supplement city and state funding and help increase the number and variety of services available at the Main Library, the Frances Perkins Branch Library at Greendale and the Great Brook Valley Branch Library.

To achieve our goal of a superior library for all of Worcester’s citizens, we ask for your help. In all its activities – from keeping the library open on Sundays, to funding new technological resources, to sending a librarian into classrooms to enlighten students about what the library offers – the Foundation seeks to create a superior level of resources and programs to inform, engage, and inspire. Your gift means more than ever, and is critical to our ability to continue to do what we do best – ensure excellence in our library. Your gift is deeply appreciated. Unrestricted Support: Your gift of unrestricted support to the Foundation provides critical support for our operations and allows us to succeed in our goal to enhance the resources and services of our great library.
