The Fall Festival is fast approaching. We hope you are getting excited to join us on Saturday, October 1st from 10am-2pm for some fun kids and adult events including a bake sale, a childrens performer, face painting, and an acoustic cafe. Full details available on our website.
We just wanted to remind you to bring in a non-perishable food item to get your tickets for the Food for Art Raffle (one ticket per item donated*). We'll be raffling of an original painting (shown above) of a plane trailing a "READ" advertisement as it flies over the Pollard. This piece was painted by our reference librarian Monica McDermott. You also visit the painting at any time between now and the festival in the display case on the Ground Floor of the library. All proceeds of the Food for Art raffle will be donated to the Open Pantry of Greater Lowell.
*You can also enter the raffle by checking out library materials (one raffle ticket per checkout) but we really would like to collect as much foodstuffs as we can for the good folks at Open Pantry.
