Help support your library.
The Friends of the Paige Memorial Library
Meeting: Wednesday, January 25 at 4:30 pm at the Paige Library
Start the New Year by joining with a dedicated group of volunteers to share your ideas for programs and activities in our lovely Town of Hardwick. The Friends support community projects both at the Paige Library and beyond. It does not matter in what part of Hardwick you live, the Friends are community oriented and want to hear your ideas for how to build good community relationships and entertaining events.
The Paige Memorial Library is a full member of the CWMars Library System. Those of you who already have a CWMars card from another library will use that card, but Paige will automatically be registered as your home library according to your zip code.
Those of you who need a CWMars card will get a new number and a new card the first time you check books out through CWMars at the Paige Library. You will fill out this form with current information.
The Paige Writers (page writers!!) enjoyed a very fun and creative first year! (The sharing of IDEAS is a wonderful thing!)
The Paige Writers will start a new season and hope you will join!
