Friends News:

Another Successful Children's Shopping Day

November 26, 2016

Dear Friends,

Dense fog and raw temperatures didn't discourage over a hundred children and their families from coming to enjoy our annual Children's Shopping Day held at the Pollard today. We were happy to see many familiar faces bringing their excited siblings who, in previous years, were too young to participate. Under the friendly and assuring guidance of our great team of teen volunteers from the National Honor Society at Lowell High, children browsed through the hundreds of donated items, got their selections wrapped and visited the cashier before being escorted back to their parents and guardians.

Thank you very much to all of you who so generously gave your time, energy, and donations. A special thanks to the Pollard Library Foundation for their generous financial support Altogether our bake sale, book sale, and shopping event raised $1750, all of which will go to support the library and its staff dedicated to serving Lowell with quality community programming and library expertise.

See you next year!
Amy Woo & Stacie Caldwell
Friends of the Library

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.
