misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Nina MacLaughlin Author Talk Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rebecca Meehan   7819330148   rmeehan@minlib.net
   
Author talk!  Since we're about to move into a construction project, we thought we might wrap up our in-library programming with this particular author talk.  Nina MacLaughlin spent her twenties working at a Boston newspaper, sitting behind a desk and staring at a screen. Yearning for more tangible work, she applied for a job she saw on Craigslist—Carpenter’s Assistant: Women strongly encouraged to apply—despite being a Classics major who couldn't tell a Phillips from a flathead screwdriver. She got the job, and in Hammer Head she tells the rich and entertaining story of becoming a carpenter.  Nina will read from her book and give us the behind-the-scenes tour of some of the experiences that led her to publishing a memoir that explores mortality, desire, the passage of time, and the meaning of work.

misc_none Library Reopens at 36 Cummings Park Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rebecca Meehan   7819330148   rmeehan@minlib.net
   

The Library will reopen at 36 Cummings Park on Tuesday, April 18th.  We'll be there until the Fall of 2018 (exact date TBD). 

We're looking forward to seeing you in our temporary location!  You can still browse our most popular collections, request and pick-up items, read the papers, and access the internet.  If you visit the Children's Room, you can still get great reading recommendations, browse the collection, sit down and read a book with your child(ren), and even visit Hardcover, our library turtle.  

One thing that you'll notice is that we won't be hosting many programs in the temporary location (no large programming space).  Not to worry!  While we're all waiting for our gorgeous library project to be completed, we'll be taking Children's and Adult programs out into the community.  We'll be popping up at local spots all over Woburn (and in some neighboring towns), so keep an eye out for us.   

We're available 24/7 online!  Check out our extensive collection of online resources, including one of our newest offerings:  The Commonwealth eBook Collection. From Bestselling fiction and nonfiction titles, to primary sources and historical documents, to academic works and books you just can't get anywhere else, this newest online resource is definitely worth checking out.
