Lowell seeking Applicants for Library Trustee

Our thanks to longtime library supporter Marie Sweeney over at Richard Howe, Jr’s blog for recently writing a great little article on ways in which you can support the Pollard Library. In addition to listing a bunch of ways you can help us be the best library we can be, Marie mentions the fact that the library is seeking qualified applicants to fill a vacant position on the Board of Trustees. And quotes from a FB post by Marianne Gries, a current trustee about her experience:

I am thrilled to be on the Library’s Board of Trustees – it’s a great group of people and I am hugely passionate about the important role public libraries play in the community. The freedom to read and to have unfettered access to information are cornerstones of democracy and libraries are at the forefront of that.

The library is also a treasure trove of awesome free programming; free books, e-books, magazines, movies, and music; free film screenings and author readings; free museum passes; free computer access and classes; and it has an amazing art collection.

The Library Board of Trustees provides policy direction in matters and concerns related to the Lowell Public Library.  The Board of Trustees meets the first  Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. Applicants should send a letter of interest and a resume by 5:00pm Monday, July 9th to the Office of the City Manager, City Hall, 375 Merrimack St., Lowell, MA 01852. Application materials may also be sent via email to Donna McIntosh, Executive Assistant to the City Manager at  For more information call the City Manager’s Office at 978-970-4000 or visit the City of Lowell website.
