New webpage coming soon!

We are currently working on a new design to help patrons obtain the information that they need on the device of their choice. Stay tuned!

The Pollard Library World Literature Book Club meets 

on the Third Tuesday of every month 6:30-7:30PM.

The meetings are free and open to the public. Copies of books up for discussion are available for patrons to borrow on a first come first serve basis at the Ground Floor Check Out Desk. You may also reserve a copy by calling the Information Desk at 978-674-4121. Please have your library card ready.
