The Massachusetts Friends of Libraries, Inc., founded in January 1992 as a non-profit organization, is committed to serving all of the state's libraries. The organization proposes "to create a network for sharing information, to help in forming and nurturing Friends of Library groups, and to boost the image and services of our libraries." MFOL has pledged to cooperate with all the appropriate national, state and regional organizations in pursuit of the best possible library and information services for all patrons. They work to create a network to provide information and technical assistance to local Friends groups, sponsor fundraisers, workshops, and roundtables. MFOL produces a membership directory of Friends groups across Massachusetts, and distributes periodic newsletters.
