Light Up Your Library!


Want to save energy and money AND have fun?! I’ve got the event for you.

On Saturday November 2 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. National Grid’s “Light up Your Library” tour is coming to the Pollard Memorial Library (401 Merrimack St.)

The “Light Up Your Library Community Tour” is open to the public and offers a fun-filled experience featuring interactive energy-efficiency-themed activities, exciting games, prizes and entertainment from Radio Disney.

Visitors can purchase energy-saving compact fluorescent light bulbs for just $1.00 each.

Patrons will also have the option to order energy efficient items at the event and throughout the month of November at the library’s second floor reference desk. The last opportunity to order will be at the Friends of the Pollard Memorial Library’s November 30th Children’s Shopping Day event.

All proceeds to benefit the Friends of the Pollard Library, including the museum pass program. This is a great opportunity for families to have fun, be green, save money, and help their local library!

Participating in this event also gives the Pollard Library a chance to win a valuable ENERGY STAR Lighting Makeover from National Grid, which will save many thousands of dollars. Starting November 1, 2013, residents can vote for participating libraries to win an ENERGY STAR Lighting Makeover from National Grid valued at more than $15,000. The winning libraries will also receive a thrilling celebratory party with Radio Disney and Disney Junior Entertainment.

Online voting will be open until November 30, 2013 and will take place through National Grid’s Facebook pages. Massachusetts residents can cast their votes at
