Library Foundation of Needham

The Library Foundation of Needham (LFN), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2003 as the permanent fundraising arm of the Needham Free Public Library. From the experience of the early ’90s, when hours and services were drastically cut and our connection with the Minuteman Library Network was eliminated, it was determined that a permanent fund was necessary.

The LFN manages an endowment, raises contributions to that endowment, and reviews and makes grants to the library for programs, materials and facility improvements not covered in the library’s budget to enhance the library’s service to the community.
