Art Reception November 8th for James Blandini

Join us Thursday, November 8 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. for a Reception of our Rotating Art November Artist James Blandini! As a Boston area native and second generation Italian American, Blandini’s paintings and drawings are an exploration of the human condition and the search for spirituality through realistic portrayal. He is drawn to the rich visual imagery found in the New Testament, the Hebrew Bible, mythology, spirituality and works of literature.

Blandini’s art will be on display at the Library through the month of November.

Annual Holiday Food Drive

Take the opportunity to give back this season.
Library patrons can contribute to the Salvation Army’s work in Malden to make the holiday season festive for others.  Lend a hand in creating a memorable Thanksgiving for those who might otherwise not be able to celebrate.

These items will be gladly accepted:

  •            stuffing
  •            dry gravy
  •            mashed potatoes
  •            canned tuna, chicken or other canned goods
  •            apple sauce

Ethnic foods are welcomed; staples, such as rice or beans, are always good additions to the pantry.

The collection container will be out on the main floor opposite the circulation desk.  The food drive will continue after Thanksgiving to accept donations for Christmas.

Thank you . . .

from the Library and the Friends of the Malden Public Library to everyone that helped make our first Brews for Books fundraising event so much fun. This includes the cider houses and breweries that donated their time, staff and product, to the generous and amazing local restaurants for the great food offerings, to our numerous volunteers from the Friends and the Malden High School Key Club, to the organizations and individuals that donated raffle and silent auction items, tents, flowers, linens, and a million things that are needed to host an event such as this. Again, thank you!
