Book and Bake Sale!

SATURDAY, JUNE 1st

 

Doors open at 8:30am < > Close at 2:00pm


The Friends of the Lunenburg Library are Seeking Volunteers
for the Lunenburg Pollinator Project 

Do you know that 35% of the world’s food crops depend on bees, butterflies, insects and bats?  And that without these pollinators we will have a future without apples, blueberries, peaches, citrus fruits, melons, etc.? And that in Massachusetts alone, we have lost 50% of our native bee species in the past twenty years?

We invite you to stop by the Save the Bees booth during the Book & Bake Sale at the Library on Saturday, June 1st to learn more about what you can do. We will have brochures available and sign-up sheets as well as other friends who are passionate about saving the bees.


The Lane Art Exhibit

'Everything I Never Told You About the Lane Collection'

Enjoy viewing these pieces that are part of the multimillion-dollar art collection amassed in Lunenburg by William and Saundra Lane.  William was a collector of 20th-century American art and photography.  He was known for his discerning eye and passion for art and music.  He began collecting American art in 1951, concentrating on the work of such artists as Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, Stuart Davis, Franz Kline, and Hans Hofmann.

Many of these works of art have been donated and have found new homes at such prestigious institutions as the MFA in Boston and the Fitchburg Art Museum. 

 

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners has created a website where patrons can leave anonymous feedback about what they love about their local library and/or CW MARS.

 

Patron feedback will be shared with CW MARS libraries and used for advocacy. It will also help us measure the effectiveness of our campaign. If you would like to leave your comments about CW MARS ~ or the LPL ~ do so HERE.

The Butterfly Place

An indoor garden filled with hundreds of freely-flying butterflies!

Next time you're looking for something engaging and culturally aware, you'll want to head directly to The Butterfly Place - a nature reserve located in Westford, Massachusetts.

Formed in 2005, the Butterfly Place is a popular attraction for school field trips and visitors interested in nature as it displays many species of animal cohabiting in the same indoor garden.  See New England butterflies and tropical species from all over the world.  Observe butterflies sipping from flowers, basking in the sunshine and flying freely in a natural habitat.  Don’t forget your camera!

The Friends of the Lunenburg Library are eligible to request Museum Passes to many museums, zoos, and living environments throughout the State.

Join the Friends today and experience these cultural activities.
