The Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, organized in 1952, is the oldest Friends group in the Boston Public Library system. We are a group of people who love libraries and all the enrichment they bring to our community.  We especially love the Jamaica Plain Branch.

  • We plan and sponsor free educational and cultural programs for the JP community.
  • We raise funds to purchase and lend free museum passes to library patrons.
  • We raise funds to purchase books, DVDs, CDs, library materials and supplies.
  • We strongly supported a complete renovation and expansion of the JP Branch Library in order to better serve the needs of the JP community.
