Pollard Memorial Library Overview
The Library Department operates two branches, the Pollard Memorial Library and the Pollard Memorial Library Senior Center Branch. As traditional uses of libraries continue to evolve, the Pollard Memorial Library has continued to change as well. Technology has become a larger part of library offerings, expanding beyond electronic catalogs to include Internet access, job searches, consortium networks, e-books, and electronic databases. In a city as diverse as Lowell, a challenge is to keep language and cultural offerings relevant.
Lowell’s library also includes community / literary events such as lectures by authors, readings, book clubs, an adult literacy program, children and teen programs. The library is making an effort to serve our “special needs” population and partner with the many non-profits in our community to bring more variety to our programming.
