On Christmas Day 1873, the Morse Institute Library was dedicated to be “of use and benefit to all the inhabitants of Natick.” Since then, through economic uncertainty and plenty, our doors have remained open. We owe it all to the generosity and foresight of our benefactor, Mary Ann Morse, and those guided by her spirit throughout the years.
With your support, we’ll carry on, changing and growing, while honoring our tradition of supporting lifelong learning for all of Natick.
