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, including the management of the gallery space
We raise funds to purchase and lend free museum passes to library patrons
We raise funds to purchase library materials and supplies for the JP Branch
We advocate for enhancements to the library and its collections
We strongly supported a complete renovation and expansion of the JP Branch Library in order to better serve the needs of the JP community - that was completed in 2017
