Sustainable Goals

Now that we've re-opened, we're looking forward to developing a sustainable library.

You can see some of what we've achieved on televisions at each library. Share your ideas on what else the library can do!

Learn more about the UN's sustainable development goals on the library's LibGuide.

The Center for Lowell History

Just when COVID-19 put us in lockdown, the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom recognized the Center for Lowell History (CLH) as an Underground Railroad Research Facility.

We have also anthologized 35 Untold (and amazing) Stories of Lowell's Black History written by retired Librarian Martha Mayo in honor of Black History Month. See Library Research Guide Explores Lowell’s Anti-Slavery, Abolitionist History.

Check Out the Untold Lowell Stories: Black History. These stories can also be found on the Libraries' Resources on Racism in the United States webpage.
