Help Us Meet Our Goal

Winter is here and there are many wonderful Maldonians who could use a hand. By bringing in non-perishable food items for our donation basket, you will be helping your neighbors have a better holiday season.

You’ve done an amazing job so far helping us meet this year’s food drive goals so let’s bring it home: 800 total food items by New Year’s Eve! Check our Facebook, Twitter, or here on our website for progress updates!

 

Our thanks to MATV for creating this video.

December Artist Carlos Arzaga

Carlos is a professional photographer from Mexico with over 15 years’ experience documenting urban life, both locally and
internationally. His fine art photographs capture the world through a realist’s lens – showcase the grit of humanity with
political undertones. Mr. Arzaga’s exhibit offers a glimpse to urban landscapes and its people around the globe, from the
streets of La Paz, Bolivia to the markets of Jerusalem. This series of photos are an invitation to explore everyday activities in
different settings across the countries.

Mr. Arzaga’s exhibit will be on display through the month of December.

Annual Food Drive

Give a deserving family a helping hand this Thanksgiving. Maldonians can help neighbors in need by contributing to the Malden Public Library’s food drive to benefit the local Salvation Army food pantry on Main St. Join the Library’s annual tradition of making this time of year special for those who might otherwise not be able to celebrate. We are aiming to collect a total of 150 individual items for the holiday.  Our Annual Food Drive will be held from November 4, 2019 until December 31, 2019.

Canned goods and other non-perishables are needed. These will be gladly accepted:
stuffing
dry gravy
mashed potatoes
canned tuna, chicken or other canned meats
apple sauce
cranberry sauce
peanut butter

International 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.

If you haven’t been to the Library before, this is a chance to come by and see what the Library has to offer. We are always happy to introduce newcomers to audio and ebooks, exhibits, film programs, writing and book discussion groups, the world languages collection, and much more. Check out our website at www.maldenpubliclibrary.org to see upcoming events for all ages.
