About the Friends
The Friends of the Roslindale Branch Library group supports, promotes and enriches the services and programs the library offers to the public.
Our all-volunteer organization works to:
- Support programs and library services
- Promote and facilitate use of the library by residents of Roslindale and surrounding neighborhoods
- Improve the physical facility
- Raise funds
- Advocate for funding and services for our library
- Maintain and develop the library's garden (under the leadership of Roslindale Green and Clean)
- Promote our group's key messages to our customers
- Make our branch green
In addition, we run book sales throughout the year to support our group. We operate a book sale booth at the Farmer's Market at Adams Park during the season.

Did you know
38 years ago, on February 21, 1975, there was a shooting at a Roslindale bar and the subsequent kidnapping and murder of witnesses. A notorious art thief and rock and roller, Myles Connor, was indicted for involvement in the subsequent murders. Some years later, Myles Connor offered the FBI information about the 1990 heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Like so many of the tips and leads received by the FBI, it came to nothing. Roslindale residents can learn more about the heist and related topics during Rozzie Reads: One Book, the first community read in Roslindale, which will be produced by the Friends of the Roslindale Branch Library this spring.
