The Family Friends is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Billerica Public Library in a variety of ways. The organization was incorporated in 1996 as a successor to over 20 years of “friends” groups. Many families are already a part of this fun organization. Some members choose to serve on active committees devoted to fundraising or publicity, and others serve on our Board of Directors. If you decide to become involved, the Family Friends will welcome your membership.


The mission of The Family Friends includes the goals of focusing public attention on library services, facilities and needs stimulating the use of the library’s resources. In addition, help develop library services to meet the changing needs of the community.
