Bedford Library Foundation

The Bedford Public Library Foundation was founded in 1993 to support the Bedford Public Library. It is a non-profit organization created by a group of Bedford citizens as a way to raise money from within our community to support non-budget items for the Library. This extra funding enriches our Library and enables it to continue to be a vital, vibrant, up-to-date community center for all ages.

The Bedford Library Foundation was instrumental in raising the funds to move forward with building a new library. Our current, beautiful library building was completed in June of 1996.

Each year, The Foundation sponsors a festive wine and cheese Gala in the fall featuring a New England author. In the spring, we conduct a town-wide Annual Fund appeal.
