But sometimes things work out best when they don't go exactly as planned.

Swing by the Children's Room to pick up a copy of the book before the club meets.  Please read the book in advance of the club meeting.

Join us at any one of our eBook and Digital Library Workshops to learn how to borrow eBooks, Audiobooks, and access Digital Content with your library card from the comfort of your own home or on the go!  Patrons will learn how to borrow and access content using hoopla and OverDrive, learn how to access classic movies, documentaries, and independent films with kanopy, and meet Libby, a “personal librarian app” for OverDrive users!

We will also demonstrate how to access The Great Courses, language learning resources, and travel guides remotely. You’ll learn how to quickly and easily access streaming popular, classical, and jazz music. And we will show you how to access even more digital content via other Massachusetts Library Networks and libraries, including the Boston Public Library.

Attendees will find it helpful to bring your Medford Public Library Card (or the Minuteman App downloaded to your smartphone), as well as your portable device, but this is not required.

Minuteman Library Crawl

Medford is participating in this year's MLN Library Crawl!

A “crawl,” or tour, is a fun way to visit multiple libraries in your area. You can travel from library to library, meet the friendly staff and learn more about what the libraries around have to offer!

The challenge is to visit as many as you can and take a picture of yourself with a designated item in each library – it’s a 21st century scavenger hunt! Then, please post your pics and tag the library. If you get to at least 5 libraries, you’ll get a highly coveted prize (one prize per group). Just show your pics to the librarians. Some libraries will have refreshments available for your long trek and all will have information on hand so you can learn about the resources they provide. All are welcome to participate – children, families, adults, everyone!

Start where you want, end where you want – it’s a self-guided crawl.

A list of participating libraries and their scavenger hunt items is available at: http://minutemanlibrarycrawl.org/librarycrawl/libraries

Community Read Event: The Wampanoag Thirteen Moons

From Past To Present: The Wampanoag Thirteen Moons with Darius Coombs, Plimoth Plantation

In this Community Read presentation, speaker Darius Coombs will talk about the Wampanoag's thirteen moon cycle and way of life that existed before the arrival of the Pilgrims interrupted Wampanoag culture. The talk will describe how European traders affected native culture, as well as major interactions with the Pilgrims and what these events mean to native people today. Coombs will also talk about Harvard University's first native graduating class of 1665 which helped bring back the Wampanoag language.

Darius Coombs,  a Mashpee Wampanoag, is known for his extraordinary dedication to sharing knowledge about Wampanoag cultural heritage. He has inspired the ongoing transformation of the interpretation and use of Plimoth Plantation's Wampanoag Homesite. In 2014 he was chosen for the New England Museum Association Excellence ward.  Additionally, one of his ancestors was a classmate of Caleb's at Harvard in the 17th century.

Mystic Street Walking Tour

Walking tours with Dee Morris  

Mystic Street: A Legacy of Family Ties and Independent Outlooks

Meet at the corner of High Street and Mystic Street at 10:00 AM on June 16, July 14, August 11

This Summer’s walking tours will explore West Medford’s lower Mystic Street. In the late 1860s, several lots on this road leading from High Street to the Mystic River were purchased by Civil War heroes. Norwood P. Hallowell and his brother, Edward, served as commanding officers of the famous 54th Massachusetts Regiment of black soldiers. Their households were called “The Colony” because of the lively interactions among children, friends, skilled staff and menagerie of pets. Come to Mystic Street to celebrate its vibrant past and to trace its colorful evolution into today’s busy neighborhood.

Thursdays, 7-8 p.m. on June 21, July 19, August 23

Join us at any one of our eBook and Digital Library Workshops to learn how to borrow eBooks, Audiobooks, and access Digital Content with your library card from the comfort of your own home or on the go!  Patrons will learn how to borrow and access content using hoopla and OverDrive, learn how to access classic movies, documentaries, and independent films with kanopy, and meet Libby, a “personal librarian app” for OverDrive users!

We will also demonstrate how to access The Great Courses, language learning resources, and travel guides remotely. You’ll learn how to quickly and easily access streaming popular, classical, and jazz music. And we will show you how to access even more digital content via other Massachusetts Library Networks and libraries, including the Boston Public Library.

Attendees will find it helpful to bring your Medford Public Library Card (or the Minuteman App downloaded to your smartphone), as well as your portable device, but this is not required.
