Our children's librarian Paula Wiktorowicz is retiring on August 16 and her retirement party will formally start on August 3 at 12 PM.   In the meantime, we did our own "exit interview" with Paula recently where she reflected on her service to the library and the Roslindale community.

Furniture Sale

Over the years the Friends have purchased items for the branch that will not be needed after the renovation.  This includes framed book cover posters, chairs, couches, and shelving units.  

These will all be for sale during the all-day party on August 3, 9 am - 2 pm.  

Come browse!  They will be priced to sell! 


We will be holding a raffle at the party on August 3 at 1 pm.  Our Roslindale business community has been very generous in recognition of Paula’s retirement and the Friends' work.  Please support us and purchase tickets at the party on August 3!

Thanks again to our raffle donors.
