Friends of the Whipple Free Library


The Friends of the Whipple Free Library is a non-profit organization begun by Beulah Hayes in 1966 to improve the library’s services, resources, and its role in the community. They provide essential support to the library.

The Friends, though its fundraising projects, were able to contribute significantly to the Hayes-Warren addition, and more recently the New Library Campaign. Other ways in which the group has been involved in enhancing the library and community include:

-the purchase of Museum Passes
-the purchase of special volumes and equipment
-the annual Wassail celebration

The organization hopes to continue to expand its role through such fundraising projects as:

– the annual Auction
– the annual Book Sale
– landscaping and gardening the library grounds

New members are encouraged to join the Friends in providing even greater contributions to the residents of New Boston through the Whipple Free Library.

Updating New Boston Telephone Directory

The New Boston 2023 Telephone and Business Directory was distributed to every home and advertised business free of charge one year ago.

The Friends of the Library plans to update the Residential listings and would like to know if your phone and/or address has changed. All new, changed and updated listings will be available as an insert to the existing phone book. This updated list will be available to be picked up at the library after August 1, 2024.

Note that the only way to make a new entry or change an existing one is to do this online, here at the library’s website. No paper forms will be accepted. If you are new to town or have a new listing, please fill in Form 1 below. If you wish to change your current listing in the directory please fill in Form 2 below. 

Note that if more than one telephone/cellphone number is to be listed for a household, a second form must be filled out for each person at an address.

Note also that only individuals 18 years of age and older may be included in the directory
