Happy National Library Week!

After waiting all year it’s finally here – National Library Week (April 9 – April 15, 2017!)  The Children’s Department is celebrating with a candy guessing contest because the library is the sweetest deal in town.  Kids twelve years old and younger can stop by the department and take a guess on our chock full jar of treats.  The kid that guesses the amount or closest without going over, wins the candy.  One guess per child.

The candy was processed in a plant that manufactures products made with dairy and nuts.  But children with food allergies can still participate as we will provide an alternative prize should a child with food allergies win.

Many thanks to Walter and Karen Hickey and Diane Laferrierre for the many hours (years!) transcribing record holdings at the Pollard Memorial Library.   The first set of records is “work permits” from the 1920’s/1930’s.   There is a tremendous amount of information for genealogists including some birth dates, place of birth, address and employment.   Click here to get access to the transcriptions. They are also available under “Genealogy” on our Electronic Resources page.

Additional genealogical resources at their website Lowell MA Genealogy:  http://www.lowellmagenealogy.com/
