SMALL WORKS* @ THE LPL
Will Hang Through the Holidays

Our local artists have created these small works of art.  They are perfect for gifts or perhaps a wee something for yourself.

We had some real treasures the last time – come in and see what this year has brought to the Library!

(*Small Works are images/art no larger than 11" in either direction.)

Featured Museum for December

Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM)

The Fitchburg Art Museum (FAM) is one of the most treasured cultural institutions in Central New England and serves the cities of Fitchburg and Leominster, as well as the surrounding communities in North Central Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.  FAM was founded in 1925 through a bequest of artist, collector, and educator, Eleanor Norcross. 

In 2012, FAM began its rotating contemporary New England artist exhibition program, thus connecting the strength of its historical collections with contemporary art practices.  Each rotating, contemporary exhibition is accompanied by an interactive educational exhibit in the Learning Lounge, where visitors young and old can learn about what they are seeing in the galleries and better understand their own reactions to the exhibits.

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.
