Strategic Plan Needs YOU

Help Shape Our Future

Strategic Plan image

The library is embarking on the strategic planning process. As part of this process we need input from community members - that means you! Even if you don’t use the library. We want to hear it all – wishes for the future, current challenges, new ideas, unmet needs. Choose how you would like to participate and how much time to spend. As little as 10-15 minutes is all it takes. Count Me In! How do I help?

Adult Book CLub

Wednesday, May 29th at 6:30 pm

Rough Sleepers cover photo

When Jim O’Connell graduated from Harvard Medical School and was nearing the end of his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, the chief of medicine made a proposal: would he defer a prestigious fellowship and spend a year helping to create an organization to bring health care to homeless citizens?  Tracy Kidder spent five years following Dr. O’Connell and his colleagues as they served their thousands of homeless patients. In this book, we travel with O’Connell as he navigates the city, offering medical care, socks, soup, empathy, humor, and friendship to some of the city’s most vulnerable citizens.

Join us for the discussion. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Library. To receive supplementary materials and email reminders, sign up here.

Clutter is more than just a nuisance: Living in a cluttered space makes cleaning more difficult - affecting your family's health. Statistics show that clutter can also reduce sleep quality, make people more irritable, and even negatively impact diet and productivity. Many people find themselves stuck in a cycle of disorganization. Skills to tackle clutter and organize spaces will be covered. Free and open to the public.  Sign up for email reminders.
