The Faneuil Library is beloved in the Oak Sq. Community.

We enhance the Branch’s offerings of events, resources, and programs. The Children’s Halloween Parade, ESL Spanish language courses, literacy tutoring, concerts and presentations by local musicians, artists and others are examples of these offerings.

The Friends regularly sponsors and supports a number of programs every month. Even during the pandemic and closure for renovation, programs continue virtually. ESL conversation classes, an introductory Spanish language course, and after school tutoring are among the programs supported by the Friends. Friends-sponsored events occur throughout the year.

Little Free Libraries

The Friends have installed "Little Libraries" in several locations around Oak Square. Find them at the corner of N. Crescent and Regal Street, in front of 80 Lake Shore Road (on Chandler Pond), across from Hobart Park on Ranelegh Road and at the Presentation School Foundation grounds at the corner of Tremont Street and Washington Street, on Dunboy Street at Frederick S.Wilson Sq. Park—and now at the Congregational Church in Brighton Center (to the right at the parking-lot entrance). You can find a map of Little Free Library locations HERE.

"Little Libraries" are free and available to all. Take a book, share a book. If you see something that you would like to read in the "Little Free Library" please take it. After you have read the book kindly return it to the "Little Library" or pass it on. If you have a book that you would like to share, please leave it. (If you are leaving books please don't overstock.) Books can be left out (in a protected place) for three days to avoid virus transmission. Check our Friends of the Faneuil Library facebook page for updates.
