Old Colony Library Network  
Wired to Reach You Campaign 
Wired to Reach You, a campaign that helps residents understand that many of the library services they love are made possible by OCLN. Residents can go to and say what they love about OCLN and their comments will be shared with state legislators. Funding to networks and library technology (state budget line 7000-9506 Library Technology and Resource Sharing) is a priority in the FY2020 Legislative Agenda so the more information legislators have about how much residents value their networks, the better.  Especially since technology has a changed a lot in the past twenty years; but what hasn't changed is state funding to support library technology and library networks. In fact, this funding is 36% lower than it was in 2001.

 Boston Bruins PJs Drive
We're teaming up with the Boston Bruins to participate in their annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. The PJ Drive’s goal is to collect 12,000 pairs of new pajamas for children and teens in need. Each time you donate new PJs to the drive, you will get a ticket for a drawing for a chance to win an autographed copy of Bobby Orr's new book and an authentic signed hockey puck from David Krecji!. The PJ drive will run through March 15th. PJs should be new, sizes 0 to Teen.

cullity"Tell Me a Story"- Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives Oral History Video Project

"Tell Me a Story" is an oral history project of the Friends of the Sandwich Town Archives (FOSTA) through which we get to look back on the life and times in Sandwich through video taped conversations with our townspeople. Memories and stories are shared that have been passed down, in some cases, for generations. In this edition, Rosanna Cullity and her son John invite us into Rosanna's historic home on Old County Road when that area of town was known as Cedarville. Listen in as they share stories about their families life which includes such Sandwich native names as White, Nye and Armstrong. Watch the video here.
