A SEND OFF FOR A WINNER

At our June meeting the Friends welcomed Villa Walsh Academy graduate Emma O’Connor and her family.  Emma is the winner of the Friends’ 2017  Career Award

Of $1000. She told us of her hope to be an active participant in the international socio-political world.  Emma will continue her studies at George Washington University in Washington D.C.  We know she will make us all proud.

A SHADY REST

The beautification of the library continues and the Friends have been asked by the Trustees to provide funds for an umbrella for our patio .  Come and enjoy a good book [ from the Friends recommended reading list on our website  tewksburylibraryfriends.org ] and the welcomed shade.

THANK YOU

Your continued support has helped us to contribute to the siding, windows, outdoor furniture, walkway, trees and landscaping projects initiated by the Trustees.
