Help us celebrate our 150th anniversary all year with this kickoff event! The original lending library opened January 28, 1867, and books began circulating April 24, 1867. The Library was housed in a room at Warren Block, now known as the Grafton Townhouse at One Grafton Common. The collection of over 5,000 books soon exceeded its allotted space, and the Library was relocated from the Clerk’s office to Lower Town Hall, where it remained at One Grafton Common for 43 years.

The Reads Well With Others Book Group meets to discuss The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth.

Description: "Dortchen Wild lives in the small German kingdom of Hesse-Cassel in the early 19th century. She finds herself irresistibly drawn to the boy next door, the handsome but very poor fairy tale scholar Wilhelm Grimm. It is a time of tyranny and terror: Napoleon Bonaparte wants to conquer all of Europe, and Hesse-Cassel is one of the first kingdoms to fall. Forced to live under oppressive French rule, Wilhelm and his brothers quietly rebel by preserving old half-forgotten tales that had once been told by the firesides of houses grand and small over the land. As Dortchen tells Wilhelm some of the most powerful and compelling stories in what will one day become his and Jacob's famous fairy tale collection, their love blossoms"

Copies are available to check out at the Library.

The Inspirational Book Group meets to discuss This Year I Will-- : how to finally change a habit, keep a resolution, or    make a dream come true by M.J. Ryan

  Description: Learn the secret to making changes that stick. Every so often people get inspired (again!) to lose weight,    get organized, start saving, or stop worrying--but a few months later they give up, frustrated. It doesn't have to be that  way. Author Ryan offers wisdom and coaching to help readers make this time the time that change becomes  permanent. People think there is one way to lose weight, and another way to stay on top of their e-mail. Rather than  one-system-fits-all, each person has their own formula for making changes that stick--but most people don't know  what theirs is. This book helps you lock on to your unique formula for planning, implementing, and seeing a life  change through, so you can use it again and again to tackle anything else you'd like to do.

 Copies are available to check out at the Library.
