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 – starts Friday June 23

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 – June

Everything-I-Never-Told-You-book-coverTuesday, June 27th, 2017 at 7:30 pm

Our book for June will be “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng. Set in Newfoundland in the 1800s, this tale of magical realism tracks family drama in a moving, character-driven saga with some Canadian folklore thrown in for good measure. Copies of the book and audiobook are available at the Reference Desk, and the audiobook is also available for instant download through hoopla digital and through Overdrive. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 6/27 @ 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.

Mutiny on the Bounty Lecture

Painting-of-the-mutiny-on-HMS-BountyWednesday, June 28th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Join historian Bob Begin at the Morrill Memorial Library for an illustrated talk on one of the most famous mutinies of all time. The HMS Bounty, belonging to the Royal Navy, was seized by mutineers in 1789 as she sailed home from Tahiti. Her captain, William Bligh, and 18 other men were cast adrift in a 23 foot open boat. Their fate and the reaction of the Royal Navy will be discussed in this epic story about life at sea, dedication to duty and discipline, and the social chasm that existed between officers and common seamen.

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

TogetherYes: “Seed: the Untold Story” screening

Seed-documentary-posterWednesday, July 12th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

The Morrill Memorial Library and Together Yes are presenting a screening and discussion of the 2016 film “Seed: the Untold Story” on Wednesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. at the Norwood Library. Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. This award-winning documentary follows the passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000-year-old food legacy in jeopardy of extinction.

In the last century, 94 percent of our seed varieties have disappeared. Biotech chemical companies control the majority of the global seed market, reaping huge profits, while farmers, scientists, lawyers and others battle to defend the future of our food. In this harrowing yet heartening film, find out how these heroes are rekindling a lost connection to our most treasured resource. To sign up, call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, fill out the form below, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.
