Find Your Next Book Here!

LImage result for booksooking for an awesome book to read?  Look no further than our Awesome Book display at the Nevins Library.  These are books (audio/print) that Methuen readers deemed “awesome” and wanted to share with others in the community.  On the backside of the Awesome Book display, you’ll find lots of other sources for your next good read:

  • LibraryReads:  the monthly nationwide library staff picks list for adult fiction and non-fiction.  Every month, we display a sign with the top ten books published this month that librarians across the country loved.  There is also a notebook with past months’ LibraryReads top ten choices.
  • All sorts of fiction and non-fiction booklists in pamphlet, sign, and bookmark formats.
  • Non-Fiction binder containing themed monthly bibliographies from the Stranger Than Fiction book group going back three years.
  • Award Winners by Genre notebook:  “from the team that brought you the Nevins Buzz blog, a stirring adventure in literary awards”
  • Binder of previous weeks’ Local Best Sellers from the Boston Globe.

“You never know what you’re looking for … until it’s in a neatly-ordered binder.”

The Awesome Box is here!

Have you read something AWESOME lately that you want to share with others?

Stayed up too late reading because you just couldn’t put the book down?  When people talk to you while you’re reading, do they sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher, “waa, waah, wa, waa”?  Did your ice tea/coffee turn hot while you were engrossed in a book?  Looks like what you’ve got is an AWESOME book on your hands.

If you’re returning a book (or CD, DVD, graphic novel) to the Nevins Library that meets this description, please drop it in the special AWESOME BOX on the counter instead of the regular book drop and we’ll let others know how great it is.

We’ll have a special display of all the awesome items you picked out for others to check out and enjoy.

I know what you’re thinking…that’s AWESOME!
