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!

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:

Titles on Tap Book Group – August

Postmortal-book-coverTuesday, August 22nd, 2017 at 7:30 pm

Our book for July will be “The Postmortal” by Drew Magary. In this pre-apocalyptic view of the near future, science has found a way to cure aging. This humorous sci-fi novel takes on the question of how society would handle something like near-immortality. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk, and the audiobook is also available for instant download through hoopla digital. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 8/22 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.

Code Burgundy: The Long Escape

Picture-of-John-KatsarosMonday, September 11th, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Hear the incredible story of 94-year-old World War II veteran John Katsaros at the Morrill Memorial Library where he will talk about his combat experiences as a bomber and gunner. The theme of his presentation, which will include original photographs and documents, is “Cherish Your Freedom.”

After being shot down and seriously wounded in 1944, Katsaros was captured by the Gestapo and escaped with the help of the French Resistance, not once but twice. He subsequently joined the French Resistance and the British Special Operations and was given the code name Burgundy. His book, “Code Burgundy: the Long Escape,” was published in 2008 and translated into French.

Mr. Katsaros is currently the President of the U.S. Air Forces Escape and Evasion Society (AFEES) and lives in his hometown of Haverhill. To sign up for this event, please fill out the form below, call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, or stop by either the library Reference or Information Desk.
