Friends of the North End Library Visit Maria’s Pastry Shop on Closing Day

The Friends of the North End Branch Library visited Maria Merola on closing day at Maria’s Pastry Shop, 46 Cross Street in Boston’s North End. The Friends group gave her a gift card for I Am Books in appreciation for her generosity in supporting their events over the years. Maria is retiring after 50 years at the shop, a local favorite with authentic, homemade offerings.
