    The 2015 Friends of the Library Annual Appeal is underway. The goal for this year is to raise the funds needed to offer innovative multigenerational Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs and resources.  Your donation will enable the library to: expand its STEM-based programming for children, teens, and adults, purchase an additional pass to the Museum of Science and purchase STEM kits that patrons can borrow. These STEM kits may include fun math games, materials for experiments with simple machines, solar powered robots and more.  Donations can be made online or may be mailed to the Friends of the Wilmington Memorial Library, 175 Middlesex Avenue, Wilmington, MA 01887.
