The Friends of the Roswell P. Flower Memorial Library is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing the resources of Watertown's historic Roswell P. Flower Memorial Library. Founded in 1954, our group was established so members of the community could play an active role in supporting the library.
Today, the Friends of the Roswell P. Flower Memorial Library organizes fundraising events, including our popular annual book sale. Proceeds from events and other fundraising activities provide gifts and endowments to the library, helping to make possible critical improvements and to enhance offerings for patrons.
