Upcoming Science Fiction / Horror Movie nights in 2018

E-mail Print

For the 2018 season the Science Fiction / Horror Movie series will follow two themes: The Science Fiction theme will be time travel and the Horror theme will be witches. Both of these themes are well covered in literature and on screen (big and little). Time travel is a fascinating subject with issues of cause and effect paradoxes and speculation on what the future holds. Witchcraft has also fascinated humanity since the stone age and the idea of people that can cause magical things to happen can be both frightening and exciting.

Please Donate good condition DVDs and Books to the Library

E-mail Print
altDonate Used DVDs & Books.
We may add them to our collection for others to borrow or place them in our ongoing book sale. Either way, your donation helps the library and your neighbors.

DVDs The Library DVD collection gets heavy use and it's hard to keep up with the demand for new and varied titles. If you have DVDs in good condition collecting dust on your shelves, please consider giving them an new active life at the library. Even if it's a title you know the library already owns, we are always happy to replace our worn copy with a donated copy in better shape.

Books Donations of recently published fiction and non fiction books (2014-2017) are also appreciated to round out the library's collection. Donated books need to be in good condition to make it on to the shelves. If we decide not to add a donated book to the collection, we can still place it in the Book Sale Carts in the lobby. Proceeds from those book sales help purchase new books and DVDs for the library collection.

We ask that you bring your DVD and book donations to the library during open hours, so that we can quickly sort through and pick out the items that make sense for the library shelves or our book sale. All others can go to the used book box at the WRATS. Please don't leave boxes of donations on the porch.

If you have any questions, please e-mail or call 978-544-3559. THANKS!!

altNarration by the Author or Authors

A Life in Parts
by Bryan Cranston

altAudiobook of the Year

Hamilton: The Revolution
by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter
Narrated by Mariska Hargitay with the authors, published by Hachette Audio

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical

Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.



altWhen Breath Becomes Air


For readers of Atul Gawande, Andrew Solomon, and Anne Lamott, this inspiring, exquisitely observed memoir finds hope and beauty in the face of insurmountable odds as an idealistic young neurosurgeon attempts to answer the question What makes a life worth living?
