Thank you to the 260 Sudbury friends who attended our 10th Anniversary Celebration on April 28, 2018.  We witnessed the grand opening of the Sara Sherman NOW Lab, celebrated community partnerships plus mingled and connected with neighbors.  There is still time to be part of this exciting moment in the Goodnow Library’s story. If you haven’t already, please consider a gift to the Reimagining the Second Floor project.

Thanks to our generous sponsors Kirk Dental, Litowitz Foundation, Northern Bank, and Stuart Beeby for photographing our events.
