The Friends of the Library Receives $15,000 from Middlesex Savings Bank!Library Trustees posing with Middlesex Savings Bank official

The Friends received a $15,000 gift from Middlesex Savings Bank. This will allow us to continue providing items and services to the Library community that are not included in the City budget.  We appreciate this very generous donation and plan to donate part of it to fund the Library’s new Makerspace.

According to Mike McAuliffe, president and CEO of Middlesex Savings Bank, “Local libraries play a major role in making our communities the special places that they are.  They provide important resources that residents of all ages can utilize and enjoy. We are pleased to be making this gift to help support all that they do.”  The $15,000 gift to the Friends is part of a cumulative gift of $1.4 million that Middlesex Savings Bank distributed to 84 non-profit organizations including libraries, food pantries and senior centers within the Bank’s retail branch territory.

 

Silhouettes Fundraiser a Success!

On November 2 and 3, 2018, the Friends hosted its second successful Portraits in Silhouettes fundraiser. Marcella Comerford-Foley, the daughter of this talented mother-daughter team, created over 55 silhouettes. The portraits are cut freehand, with no shadow or tracing. Here are some photos from the event:
