The Winthrop Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization formed to accept charitable contributions in support of the Bailey Library’s mission as “a lifelong learning center offering diverse resources for people of all ages.” After completing a successful Capital Campaign in 2015, the forward-thinking members of the foundation changed direction to meet the evolving needs of a growing and dynamic patron base. The foundation advocates for an ever-improving library and works to generate resources to support the Bailey Public Library. A separate entity from the Friends and Trustees, with its own mission and by-laws, the foundation enlists the involvement of individuals, families, foundations, businesses, organizations, trusts and estates. The foundation’s strength lies in Winthrop’s many community volunteers whose dedicated service and generous contribution of time, talent and resources have helped develop Bailey Public Library into the thriving cultural institution it is today. The Bailey Library enriches the lives of everyone in our community, regardless of age or economic circumstance. Whether you use the library or value it as a center of knowledge and exploration, becoming a supporter of the foundation is an effective way to support one of Winthrop’s most valued treasures.

The Bailey Library is indebted to the community of Winthrop, who came together from 2010-2015 to make the 2015 Library Addition a reality. This project was an aspiration of the Board for over forty-five years, and the results will benefit many generations to come.
