The Town of Winthrop provides funding for basic library services. The Winthrop Public Library Foundation provides funding for additional resources, programs and services that take our library to a higher level of excellence. Demand for materials, public computers and programs continues to grow, and the foundation hopes to help meet that demand. Funds donated to the Foundation are used to:

• Buy new books and materials
• Support programs such as early literacy and music programs for young children
• Host free public programs with best-selling authors, artists and community leaders
• Provide public access to computers and free instruction using the Internet
• Purchase furniture that enhances the patron experience
