Support Your Library

In these difficult economic times, the Peabody Institute Library strives to maintain the quality programs and services that have made it so effective in serving the needs of the community. The library has no separate programming budget; it is through the generosity of people like you that the Friends and Foundation are able to help fund the library’s numerous programs and services.

Friends of the Peabody Institute Libraries

The Friends of the Peabody Institute Libraries support programs for adults, teens and children in our community. We also support programs at the West and South Branch Libraries, provide museum passes for Peabody residents, and college scholarships for those who have worked in any of the three Peabody Libraries.
