Join us for Audio Book Club this Autumn
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 focusing on reading/listening to science fiction / fantasy titles. In Fall 2018, the group moves to the last Saturday of the month. The October 27 selection is The Graveyard Book. The group will be on hiatus for the month of November.
