Norwell Public Library a Drop-Off Location for Boston Bruins PJ's Drive

The Norwell Public Library has teamed up with the Boston Bruins to participate in the twelfth annual pajama drive to benefit DCF Kids and Cradles to Crayons. Please drop off NEW pajamas for babies through teens in the drop box in the Library's front lobby, through March 15th.  
Libraries from around the state use the Massachusetts Library System's delivery service-- typically used to send books and other library materials-- to send their PJs to area collection locations, which increases libraries' ability to participate in the drive.
