Smile for the Friends of the Library

Did you know that when you shop at Amazon, you can raise money for the Friends of the Lawrence Library? You’ll be supporting a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster closer relations between the Library and the community; to promote awareness of the Library’s services and programs; and to raise funds for Library purchases.

2. Sign into your Amazon account.

3. If you’re already supporting an organization, you’ll see something like the following image. Note where it reads “Supporting” in gold. If you are already supporting an organization, you can change it from the drop down menu.

We are happy to share that this trail is accessible to people in wheelchairs or with visual impairments. It is the only accessible trail at a public library in Massachusetts! Additionally, the new garden features plants that are native to the area.

There will be a story to read while you enjoy the trail: Looking Out for Sarah by Glenna Lang. Plus, we will have live music and light refreshments, sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Library Board of Trustees.
