A Message from the President on another successful 
Children's Shopping Day - Saturday, November 29, 2014


December 1, 2014

Dear Friends,

Thanks to your generous gifts of time, donations, and money, our 3rd Annual Children's Shopping Day was a fantastic success. One hundred seventy-five happy children walked out the door carrying bags loaded with presents for loved ones (as well as for themselves!). Meanwhile waiting in the lobby, grown ups bought goodies at our bake sale table, filled a bag of books for five bucks, and bought beautiful Audubon bird calendars and stationery from the PML's Foundation.

From the moment we opened our doors at ten o'clock until well into the late afternoon, our shopping showroom stayed packed with people. Our gift-wrappers nearly ran out of supplies, while our cash box grew steadily. Altogether our book sale, bake sale, and gifts inside made over $1,600.

On behalf of the Friends of the Library, I want to say thank you very much for helping make this library event a lot of fun for so many children.

best wishes,
Amy Woo
President of the Friends

About Us:

The Friends of the Pollard Memorial Library is a volunteer group dedicated to supporting the library and its programs. Our primary goal is to support the museum pass program, allowing library patrons to visit designated museums at reduced admission prices. We also sponsor various other programs at the library, such as author programs, genealogy workshops, and movie nights.

Our funding comes from membership dues, donations, book sales, bake sales, and other events, as well as from ongoing sales from our book cart (located in the library next to the circulation desk).

We are committed to supporting the library and the Lowell community. Currently we host an annual book sale, and we plan to add more outreach and membership events in the coming year. Are you interested in a summer garden tour, a fall apple-picking party, a winter bowling night, or a spring wine tasting? Let us know your thoughts. We welcome your input and look forward to the opportunity to get to know you better.

Become a member!

Join us today! Annual memberships are $15 for families, $10 for individuals, and $5 for students and seniors. Your contribution will go directly toward supporting library programs. We are a registered (501)(c)(3)nonprofit. We would be happy to receive your check or money order accompanied by a membership form (available in the library or through the mail by calling 978-674-4120). You might also consider volunteering—we're always happy for the help!
