What is the Foundation

The Reading Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization committed to raising funds to support the Reading Public Library. The Foundation has established, and is focused on expanding, an endowment that will provide a long term, sustained source of supplemental funds for the Library. About The Foundation >

The Foundation Sponsors the Author Series and more

The Foundation has brought a number of noteworthy authors and lecturers to our town, including Roland Merullo (above), to gain public awareness for the Foundation as well as to raise additional funds. We have also joined with the Helen A. Nigro Speaker series for some of these events and with the Friends of the Reading Public Library to support the 2012-2013 Massachusetts Author Series. More about The Foundation’s Outreach >

The Foundation honored two outstanding Reading residents who have been involved with supporting the Library for many years. Shown above flanking former Foundation President Bill Hecht are Susan Axelson and Russell Graham at the Foundation’s Donor Reception in November.
