The Saugus Library Foundation (SPLF) is actively looking for people who have a love for the Saugus Public Library and would like to serve on the Foundation Board.  The Foundation is open to anyone who can bring new ideas and energy to the group and to help forward the future of the Saugus Library.

 The Foundation Board returns 100% of the profits of all fundraising efforts to the Saugus Library by supporting events and funding purchases that are not typically covered by the Town library budget.  For example, the committee is excited about the latest purchase, an electronic sign, which will be up and running shortly, and will be programmed to display coming events and information for the library.

“In the past we have purchased the flat screen TV that is used by many civic groups for presentations in the Community Room.  We have funded the purchase of over 25 new computers used in the library and purchased much needed new furniture for the children’s section of the building.  The Foundation provided the funding for the new Library website and continues to fund the site and the genealogy research programs which is used extensively by the patrons.  These are just some of the ways we give back to the Library”, said SPLF President Ed Jeffrey.

Please consider joining the SPLF in these efforts to enhance the Saugus Library experience by sending a letter of interest to Saugus Library Foundation in care of the Saugus Library, 295 Central Street, Saugus, MA  01906 or email at –

About the Saugus Public Library Foundation: The Saugus Public Library Foundation was established in 2004 through significant gifts from the estates of Douglas Lockwood, Josephine Kibbey, and Marie Weeks, as well as funds turned over by the now-disbanded environmental nonprofit, Noblast, Inc., and smaller individual trust funds and bequests. The Foundation provides the means for the library to make long range plans and commitments using the interest earned on the principal balance of the Foundation, and promote and carry out charitable and fundraising activities.
