Friends of MPL, Locke Liquors, and Malden Community

Thank you for making the 15th Annual Friends of the Malden Public Library Wine Tasting another successful evening. The Friends worked hard to coordinate the night, Locke Liquors supplied the wines, and many Malden businesses and individuals donated food, raffle prizes, and money. The Friends help the library provide things like the museum pass program, new wifi upgrade, computers, and many more things. Paul Hammersley of the City of Malden took beautiful photos that can be seen here.

If you would like to help the library, please consider joining the Friends. To learn more, visit our Friends page.
