LIBRARY SYSTEMS ARE GOING OFFLINE THIS WEEKEND (JUNE 27-28)

Our consortium’s central site is moving their offices this weekend which means our internal computer system will be offline for the entire weekend.*

We will be open for regular hours (9am-5pm) this Saturday, June 27, 2015 however please note the following:

  • There will be NO ONLINE CATALOG and LIMITED DATABASES & PATRON COMPUTERS. 
  • You will need to have your LIBRARY CARD to CHECK OUT materials. And sadly we will not be able to issue new cards this weekend.
  • NO FINE PAYMENT OR ACCRUAL
  • NO MUSEUM PASS RESERVATIONS

The system should be restored Monday, June 29th. We will keep you posted here of any updates or developments. We appreciate your patience in case of any unforeseen delays.

*This might be a good opportunity to take a walk around the block and it just so happens that I (Sean Thibodeau) will be leading a Lowell Walks tour featuring Literary Lowell & the Pollard Library  departing from the Lowell National Park Visitor Center at 246 Market Street at 10am on Saturday morning. I’m excited to be leading the fourth in what is shaping up to be an outstanding series of walks this summer. More info about Lowell Walks at richardhowe.com

It’s hard to believe but our Summer Reading Program starts this week!  Summer Reading officially kicks off this Thursday (June 25, 2015) at 7 PM with a visit from some special animal heroes.  Come join us and learn why these animals’ unique abilities make them heroes in the animal world.  This program is for children age 5 years and older and does require registration.  Although the program is free, space is limited.  Stop by the Children’s Desk or call 978-674-1529 to reserve your spots.
