Summer Reading for Adults 2017

Summer-reading-sunglasses-on-bookHello, Norwood readers! Once again, we have two great options for adults to take part in summer reading with the Morrill Memorial Library in 2017. Everyone high school-aged or older can take part, and don’t worry, audiobooks and graphic novels definitely count.

Weekly Prizes

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 August 25 from all these entries for a $35 Barnes & Noble gift card. If you write a book review on your form, we’ll post it (anonymously) on our website. This way, we can all share book recommendations!

Your Book Reviews – Summer 2017
And a blast from the past:
Your Book Reviews – Summer 2016

Readers’ BINGO – all of June, July, and August

Plus, you can take part in Summer Reading BINGO! Download BINGO sheets below, or pick them up in the library. BINGO sheets can be submitted to Nancy Ling in Outreach or to Liz Reed in Reference. Turn them in even if you’ve only completed one or two rows – you might win! 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 gift cards provided by several generous local sponsors. For BINGO, feel free to count any books you read in June, July, and August. Sheets must be turned in by noon on Friday September 1.

Download BINGO sheets here!

Gift certificate prizes will be provided by these local sponsors:

Dr. Gary Hylander – Selling the Constitution: The Federalist Papers

Federalist-papers-graphicMonday, August 14th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Come to an informative and entertaining talk by Dr. Gary Hylander at the Morrill Memorial Library on Monday, August 14 at 7 p.m. titled “Selling the Constitution: the Federalist Papers.” Published between 1787-88, the Federalist Papers are the most important American contribution to political theory. Drafted by Madison, Hamilton, and Jay, they were written to gain support for the ratification of a new Constitution and to discredit the objections of the Anti-Federalists who feared its centralizing powers and national authority. In the Federalist Papers, Madison, Hamilton, and Jay explained the principles of the new Constitution and carefully outlined how it would work to improve the lives of “We the People” and serve to create “a more perfect Union.”

To sign up for this program, funded by the Friends of the Library, please fill out the form below, call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, or stop by either the library Reference or Information Desk.
