Through a generous gift from the Friends of the Dracut Library, we are now able to make available electricity usage monitors and infrared themometers. Use them to evaluate your home electricity usage by plugging in an appliance. Or use the infrared themometer to see where your home is leaking heat or cold air! Ask for them at the circulation desk and check them out!

The Friends of Dracut Library are offering a special gift for your child at this holiday season: a personalized letter from Santa Claus to your child! It’s very simple: Fill out the form neatly (links to the form are below) and drop it off at the Circulation Desk or in the Children’s Room along with a donation of $3.00 per letter. Checks can be written to the “Friends of the Dracut Library.” Forms need to be received by December 10, 2010. Don’t wait late requests will only be processed based on time and availability.
Did you know, that as a resident of Dracut, you can check out passes to a wide assortment of local museums? Explore the treasures of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston or the underwater world of the New England Aquarium. Discover the Children’s Museum in Boston or the Discovery Museum in Acton, MA. How about a day at the beach? Did you know you could visit Massachusetts State Parks for free? How about the Zoo? You could visit there too! We have passes for both the Franklin and Stoneham Zoo! Don’t let the summer months pass you by – Discover. Explore. Have Fun!
The library is closed for the 4th of July weekend and reopens July 6th – but we know you need to know that Holiday Trivia for your weekend BBQ’s! From our friends at Chiff here goes:
Number of places nationwide with “liberty” in their name. The most populous one is Liberty, Missouri (26,232). Iowa has more of these places than any other state: four (Libertyville, New Liberty, North Liberty and West Liberty).
Number of visits in a recent year to our national parks — a particularly scenic locale for a July 4th picnic. There were 766 million visits in a recent year to another popular picnic venue — state parks or recreation areas. Those in California (80 million), Ohio (59 million), New York (56 million), Washington (48 million) and Illinois (44 million) recorded the highest number of visits. DID YOU REMEMBER TO RESERVE THE MASSACHUSETTS STATE PARKS PASS FROM THE LIBRARY??
And then there are the Holiday mishaps…but we have you covered (no pun intended! Though I do warn you, we’ve never tried these treatments so use good judgement!) Poison Ivy Treatments, Sun burns, and those often dreaded Family Reunions! We hope you have a wonderful, safe 4th of July!!
