"A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert."
—Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) Industrialist, Businessman, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist
"Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted."
—Albert Einstein (1879-1955) Theoretical Physicist
Our library is like any public library in that we are a reflection of our community. We are molded and shaped by the uniqueness of Lowell. In turn, we help mold and shape Lowell by bettering the quality of life for its citizens.
Lowell and its library are only as strong as our community’s engagement. This is your library, Lowellians, and there are a number of ways you can pitch in to make it the best it can be. You can donate your time as a volunteer or make a monetary donation to the Friends or Foundation. You can donate a book or other item to our collection in memory of a loved one or for a special occasion. You can send us a suggestion. You can enjoy our collections and services and share your library experiences with your friends, family, and co-workers.
