Every February the Friends of the Brookline Public Library donate the proceeds from the book sales in all 3 libraries to the library in Brookline Sister City in Quezalquaque, Nicaragua. This year the proceeds are $3,400. Since 2009, the Friends have donated $16,619 to our Sister City Library. These funds help to purchases books, magazines, CDs and other material for the library and also support the mobile library in the rural areas of the municipality.
A special way to say thank you to the Friends of the Brookline Library would be to become a member. For $10/year you can support their many efforts for enhanced library services in Brookline and Quezalguaque. http://www.brooklinelibrary.org/get/friends
