A Day in the Life of Shrewsbury Public Library Director Ellen Dolan

Shrewsbury/Marlborough - Ellen Dolan, of Marlborough, genuinely loves helping people learn and has spent her life doing just that. From her early years as a page in the Marlborough Public Library, Dolan has since spent more than 40 years as a local librarian, first for 18 years in Marlborough, then as director of the West Boylston Public Library for 13 years, and now for 6 years in her current position as director of the Shrewsbury Public Library. As she explains, "I like to be able to assist people in meeting their goals and I think the library is a perfect place for that. People use it to improve their lives, to find enjoyment and pleasure, to connect with each other. So having a job where you get to facilitate all that is really rewarding everyday."
