Getting Involved

The library does not operate on staff and town funding alone. Without the invaluable help of many other supporters, we could not bring our stakeholders the level of service they are accustomed to. There are a variety of ways you can lend your support to the library, whether it be a gift of time or money.


In addition to staff, for example, the library welcomes the assistance of a corps of volunteers–from students looking to fulfill community service requirements, to seniors taking advantage of the Sudbury Senior Work Program, to the many individuals who want to give something back–the library is committed to engaging these community partnerships. If you would like to volunteer at the library, please fill out the form on our Volunteer page, and we will get in touch with you shortly.


The Goodnow Library Foundation seeks to build an endowment to cover the cost of ongoing major capital expenses.  Help the Foundation keep the Goodnow Library a vital part of the Sudbury community.
