The library encourages residents to also attend the town’s annual Holiday and Christmas Tree Lighting Event, from 6pm to 7:30pm, at the Town Common, and the annual Pie Social, from 6pm to 9pm, at the Tewksbury Congregational Church. Try to plan your evening so you can enjoy the library’s gala and these two other wonderful events!
