Formerly known as the Lowell Public Library, this library has been open since 1845. Jack Kerouac used to skip school at least once a week to read books by Shakespeare, Victor Hugo, William Penn, and scholarly books on chess.

From Maggie Casidy:
"It was how I'd become interested in old classical looking library books, some of them falling apart and from the darkest shelf in the Lowell Public Library, found there by me in my overshoes at closing time."
