Borrowing Library Materials
The Branch Library at the City of Lowell Senior Center houses a general recreational reading collection for seniors and the general public. Residents may borrow library materials at the branch using their Pollard Library card. Library cards may be obtained at the Main Library on 401 Merrimack Street, next to City Hall. For those who cannot get to the Main Library, library card applications can be filled out at the Branch, and a card will be available for pick-up at the branch the following day. Please visit our Library Cards and Loan Rules page for a full explanation of how to obtain a card and a list of our borrowing policies.
The Branch Library includes six computers, a printer and a Library Computer Lab containing 11 computers and a printer. These machines and software were made possible due to a generous grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The six computers in the Branch Library are available from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday for Internet, electronic mail, and a variety of office programs (Word, Excel, Power Point, Publisher...).
The computers in the Computer Lab are for computer trainings sponsored by the library and other community organizations. Computer trainings are open to adults of all ages. The trainings are currently made available through an LSTA grant administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners given to the Pollard Memorial Library. For a current schedule of trainings please visit our Computer Classes page.
We hope you enjoy the Branch Library and its offerings provided through this partnership. Please contact the Main Library with any comments or questions. Please call the main library number (978) 674-4120 if you need any assistance.
