Friends of Whelden Memorial Library


The Friends of Whelden Memorial Library, affectionately known as the "FOWL," is an organization dedicated to supporting the trustees and library staff.

Through their fundraising efforts, the Friends endeavor to provide extra programs and services for West Barnstable residents and other users of our library. Over the years, they have provided the library with a copy machine, new carpeting, a circulation desk, air conditioning, new computer equipment, the display case for the DVD collection, museum passes, the annual membership for CLAMS OverDrive digital audio and eBooks and many other items.


They meet at the library on the 2nd Friday of the month at 10:00 am.


The FOWL Bookstore
has a varying schedule. Typically, it is open throughout the year on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, weather and holiday dependent.

To stay up to date on the bookstore schedule, visit the library's event page .

Funds generated from the FOWL bookstore are used to support the library.
