Adult Summer Reading 2016

david-bowie-for-american-libraries-poster-imageHello, Norwood readers! We have two great options for adults to take part in summer reading with the Morrill Memorial Library in 2016. Everyone high school-aged or older can take part in both these summer reading activities.

For every book you read this summer, you can enter to win a weekly drawing for a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card. To enter these weekly prize drawings, fill out and submit this form, OR fill out the paper version and return it to the submission box on the Circulation Desk. Paper forms can be found on the Circulation and Reference Desks. There will be a grand prize drawing on Friday September 2 from all these entries for a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card. If you write a book review on your form, we’ll post it (anonymously) on this page. This way, we can all share book recommendations!

If you’d like a challenge, take part in our Reader’s BINGO. Use this form or pick one up in the library. You can double-dip with both the weekly prize entry and the BINGO sheet, but each title can only be counted once on the BINGO sheet itself. For every completed BINGO row, you get one entry in the drawing for a David Bowie READ poster from the American Library Association. Sheets must be turned in by noon on Friday September 2nd.

Questions? Please contact either Nancy Ling (nling@minlib.net, 781-769-0200 x228) or Liz Reed (lreed@minlib.net, 781-769-0200 x110). Have fun!

Local genealogist, Joe Petrie, will offer a Genealogy 101 Seminar packed with useful information and resources. Intended for people just beginning to research their family’s genealogy, the program will cover the following topics: starting genealogy using a Pedigree Chart; databases to use to fill in vital information such as place and date of birth, marriage, and death; how to work backwards using birth and marriage records; how to verify information; how to use trusted relatives as resources; collecting “quasi-vital” information not on a Pedigree Chart; GotGenealogy.com’s 10 Golden Rules; and how to select a genealogy software, with an emphasis on free software.

To sign up for this program, please call 781-769-0200 x110, email norprograms@minlib.net, or visit the Reference or Information desk.

Have you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to binding off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy to continue working on your project.

Space is very limited, so call 781-769-0200 x110 or email norprograms@minlib.net to sign up or if you have any questions! Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
