Friends of the North End Branch Library recently held a fundraiser (see the pictures). Contributions can still be mailed to 25 Parmenter St., Boston, MA 02113 or drop them off the library. Checks should be made out to “Friends of the North End Branch Library.”

Friends of the North End Branch Library meet the third Wednesday of every month at the North End Library at 25 Parmenter Street at 6:30 pm. They are always looking for volunteers. See their pamphlet at the branch.

Of course, going to the library and taking books out will help increase the branch’s circulation numbers!
