Serve on the Student Advisory Board

A hands on opportunity for an active role in running a library program that also serves the academic community of Framingham. Meet on a monthly basis with students representing each of the middle and high schools. Plan and run fun town-wide academic events (spelling and geography bees, fundraising fashion shows, essay contests, etc.) Being a member of the advisory board is a leadership/community service experience, important to note on college and employment applications. Students can also serve as tutors with younger students and peers in the Homework Center Tutoring Program.

About usThe Framingham Public Library on 49 Lexington Street opened its doors in December 1979. The Christa McAuliffe Branch, formerly known as the Saxonville Branch, opened at 10 Nicholas Road in March 1963. It was renamed in 1987 for teacher and astronaut Christa Corrigan McAuliffe. In early 2016 the Branch moved to its brand new building on 746 Water Street.
