Non-Fiction Book Club

Due to the rise in the number in Covid-19 cases, we’re moving the date for January’s Non-Fiction Book Club meeting up one month to Tuesday, February 8 at 5 PM (note the adjusted time). As a result of this schedule change, we will keep the same book for both January and February, “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls.

For more information about this book, you can click here.

Regular print, large type and audiobook copies of this book are available at the circulation desk of the Main Library. You can also borrow the e-book and e-audiobook through Libby.

For more information, contact Reference/Outreach Librarian Steven Miller at or (508) 295-2343 x1012.
