Jim Nolan, has served two consecutive terms as a Parker Memorial Library Trustee and is currently seeking a third term in our May elections. Born in Boston during World War II, Jim attended seven different schools in both the United States and Germany as his family followed his father, a career Army Officer, on his different postings. He completed high school and went on to college in New York City, later working for a Master's degree in English Literature at Boston College. Two and a half years of active duty in the United States Army followed.
After his military service, Jim taught history in the public school system in a community south of Boston. He married, and moved to Dracut in 1982, where he has lived ever since.
Jim has enjoyed his time as a Trustee of the Moses Greeley Parker Memorial Library, and looks forward to continued service with the other Board members. He feels that the changes at the Parker in the last five years under the leadership of Director, Nanci Milone Hill, have been superlative, and that the welcoming staff, numerous programs and openness to the community have made the Parker Library a tremendous asset to the Town of Dracut.
