MutualOne Foundation Gives $5,000 To Framingham Bookmobile Fund

FRAMINGHAM –  The MutualOne Charitable Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the Framingham Public Library Foundation toward the purchase and operation of a bookmobile.


Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOneBank and a MutualOne Charitable Foundation trustee, made the announcement today, Feb. 14.


The proposed bookmobile will increase accessibility to library materials and services for those living in neighborhoods throughout the community.

“The bookmobile will be a great advantage for all residents, particularly those who now have limited access to Framingham’s two libraries,” said Haranas. “It will also enhance the availability of library services for children, senior citizens, veterans, and those with disabilities, and we’re happy to help make that a reality.”


The $5,000 grant to the Framingham Public Library Foundation was among awards totaling $121,000 in the MutualOne Charitable Foundation’s most recent round of funding.

Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $3.9 million to charitable, educational, and civic initiatives that improve and enrich the quality of life in Framingham, Natick, and surrounding communities.
MutualOne Bank, which operates under an 1889 state charter, has full-service offices at 828 Concord Street and One Lincoln Street in Framingham and at 49 Main Street in Natick, a Commercial Loan Center at 160 Cochituate Road in Framingham, and a Residential Loan Center at 49 Main Street in Natick.
