Our new non-fiction book club, “Stranger than Fiction”, will meet at the library on the second Monday of the month from 7-8pm. We’ll read across all topics within nonfiction (ex. Biographies, True Crime, Travelogues) except for religion and politics, because after all, we want to start a discussion, not a fight! Some months we’ll be discussing a single title, other months there will be a theme and a list of suggested books on that topic from which participants can choose. For more information, visit this group's web page for upcoming meetings and titles, or contact Tatjana Saccio at extension 12. Click here for books by month and guides

Tuesday Evening Romance Book Group
To be held on the first Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
Contrary to popular opinion all romance books aren’t alike, though they do follow the basic “boy meets girl” plot there’s plenty of room for variety. The plots and characters can vary as much as any mystery novel. Just imagine a tree with many branches growing in lots of different directions, these are the subgenres we are going to read and discuss. First subgenre will be Historical Romance. For more information and to register, contact Pat Graham 978-686-4080 ext. 16
