Notice to current members of the
Friends of the Levi Heywood Memorial Library

The Friends Board will not be sending a membership mailing this year. Memberships that are already on the roster will now be valid through December of 2023. (The Friends hope to send the next membership mailing on or around November 1, 2023.) New members to the Friends group are always welcome. Please see Children’s Room Staff with questions, or call 978-632-5298 and ask for the Children’s Room. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Friends Board, please call Interim Director Tammy Caissie, or Assistant Director Gina Verrelli. The Friends are always looking for members who are willing to be active and supportive. The Board will next meet in January 2023 to discuss adding a few interested people to the Board, and we would be happy to supply the Board with the names of interested parties.
Thank you for your understanding and patience as we re-group and plan for our next Book Sale, which we hope will be in 2023.
