Our book for March will be “Hyperbole and a Half” by Allie Brosh. This graphic novel is based on the author’s popular blog, and manages to be humorous while helping lift the stigma around mental illness. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 3/28 @ 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.

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, visit the Reference or Information Desk, or fill out the form below to sign up. Let us know if you have any questions! Participants must be 14 years of age or older.
