News @ The Lunenburg Library

What a wonderful display case showing of antique and collectible toys we have!  Thank you to all who are lending us their treasures.  As you will see, our shelves are full, the call for toys fulfilled.  Next time you are in the Library, take a look at the past!

** Happy Holidays to All from the LPL Staff **


Small Works Art Exhibit

Enjoy this display by 18 area artists!

Small Works are typically smaller than 11 inches (unframed) so they have a very special quality to them.  They also make wonderful and affordable (<$100) Christmas gifts.  Visit the Community Room when it is not in use during normal Library hours.

This exhibit will hang until January 3, 2018.

Featured Museums 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.

Boston Children's Museum

The idea for a children’s museum in Boston developed in 1909 when several local science teachers founded the Science Teacher’s Bureau.  One of the Bureau’s main goals was to create a museum 'local in its nature and to contain, besides the natural objects, books, pictures, charts, lantern slides, etc., whatever else is helpful in the science work of the Grammar, High and Normal Schools. The specimens are to be attractively arranged and classified and the room open daily to children or anyone interested in such work.'

In 2013, Boston Children's Museum was one of ten recipients of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. This National Medal, the nation’s highest honor conferred on museums and libraries for service to the community, celebrates institutions that make a difference for individuals, families, and communities.
