DONATE TODAY!

Our Annual Boston Bruins PJ Drive is coming to an end! If you haven't had a chance to donate, next week will be our last week. We are collecting NEW pajamas with tags for babies, kids, and teens. All donations benefit our local DCF to help families in need.  By supporting our PJ Drive, you will directly supply new pajamas to the children who need them most so they can stay warm in their own homes. This is an annual event which usually takes place amongst libraries statewide, and although the drive looks a bit different this year, Upton Town Library is still committed to this important event. Donations can be dropped off during our hours of operation to the donation bin in our No Contact Pickup Room. For any questions or to request help in donating, contact Children's & Young Adult Librarian, Lee Ann Murphy, at lmurphy@cwmars.org. Thank you for your support!
