Library Board

The Board of the Friends of the Westfield Memorial Library are a nominated group of volunteers who plan and host events,  programs and book sales for the Friends membership, the library and the greater Westfield community. They represent the Friends on library and town wide committees to ensure that the Friends maintain an active presence in Westfield.
The Board is composed of an annual nominated executive board and committee members who participate in monthly board meetings and work independently to support their specific functions. Friends members are welcome to participate throughout the year in any of the committees listed. We thank our continuing Board members as well as previous Board members who have worked so hard to keep the Friends vital and growing.
