Join us for Audio Book Club this Summer
Starting in June, the Southborough Library will be holding an Audio Book Club once a month on Thursday evenings. This new group is aimed at adult readers who enjoy both reading - and listening - to books. Led by library associate Christopher McGinn, this group will primarily focus on science fiction and fantasy titles.
The group will be initially reading/listening to science fiction / fantasy titles. The August selection is Spoonbenders by Daryl Gregory. Books are also available via Overdrive. Future selections include Stranger in a Strange Land & The Graveyard Book. In Fall 2018, the group moves to the last Saturday of the month.
Young Adult Book Group - Sept. 25 at 4:00 PM
On the afternoon of Tuesday, September 25, the Southborough Library will once again host a Young Adult Book Club for ages 13-18. The group will be led by the library's new Assistant Director & Young Adult Librarian Aileen Sanchez-Himes.
The group meets up the last Tuesday of every month from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM in the Eaton Meeting Room downstairs. Reserved book club titles will be held at the Holds Pickup area upstairs and available to check out at the beginning of each month.
For the month of September, the group will discuss summer reading favorites as everyone gets to know each other. Snacks will be provided!
Cook Book Club on September 12 at 7:00 PM
It's time for something delicious. On the second Wednesday of every month, join us at the Southborough Library for a tasty, new Cook Book Club! It meets upstairs at 7:00 PM.
Those interested - and who hopefully join us - each cook a different dish from the selected cook book of the month. To avoid overlap, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your selection.
September 12 at 7:00 PM is the club's inaugural meeting upstairs with Marianna. The first cook book selection is Taste of Home: Best Loved Recipes. We hope that you can join us and improve your cooking skills.
Let's Play! Chess Saturdays, Sept. 8 at 2:00 PM
