Friends Fall Book Sale Postponed

Friends of the Nevins Library Methuen Blue colored banner

If you’re anxiously looking forward to our Biannual Friends of the Nevins Library Fall Book Sale (say that three times fast) that happens in September, alas, we will not be having it this fall. With all that’s going on with the repair of the library we don’t currently have the storage space or sale space in the hall to put it on right and well.

But, don’t worry, we’re looking towards early spring-ish next year to have the book sale. It will be a bigger and better one too! Keep an eye out on our website & social media, and the Friends’ Events page specifically for updates.

Please also note that, at the moment, we are not taking book/item donations for the book sale. Once we can again, we will (metaphorically) shout it from the rooftops, we promise!

Adults, too, can read for prizes at the Nevins Library!

Children and teens have their fun and rewarding summer reading programs, so why not do one for adults too?

All you need to do is stop by the Nevins Library and fill out a log sheet.  Record one book you read or listened to that week to earn a raffle ticket.  Each Monday, we will draw a lucky winner from all entered.  Winners will receive gift cards to local establishments, all donated by the Friends of the Library.  It’s so easy and fun!

Proceed to GO and pass to “Kid’s World”!

A New “Museum” Pass

Oh no, it’s raining and it’s Summer Vacation. What do I do?

The Nevins Library has you covered!

There’s a new “Museum” Pass to an awesome place where kids can run, play, and have a good time (I think there’s even a ‘beach’). And it’s all inside.

You can now put on hold our pass to Kid’s World Indoor Playground in Salem NH.

There is over 13,000 square feet of fun and space to run around in and plenty of seating for parents, so this is an outing the whole family can enjoy.

This pass grants 50% off Open Play admission for 1 full day.  Up to 3 children with 2 adults.

This pass was donated by the Friends of the Nevins Library.
