Finding METHUEN’s Great American Read!

Have you heard about PBS’s event ‘The Great American Read’ yet?  PBS has come up with a list of 100 favorite books, and is asking people to vote for their absolute favorite.  The one that comes out on top will be considered “The Great American Read”.  They are supporting this with an 8 part television series (it already started – find it OnDemand or when they replay the episodes).

But we thought, “what about METHUEN’s Great American Read”?  Therefore, we are starting a long voting process here in the library to find the answer to that question.  Every week beginning June 11, we will have 5 books up for a vote near the Main Desk.  We’re asking you to vote with your pennies for your favorite book(s).  Vote early and often!  The top 5 books will have a run-off election at the end, and then we will know Methuen’s Great American Read.

The money collected in this voting process will benefit our incredible Friends of the Nevins Library group.  They support the library in so many wonderful ways; they are funding the building of the garden behind the library, they purchase the annual museum passes that so many of us enjoy, and they support our summer reading programs.

Thank  you for your vote!

An Enchanting Summer Evening @ Nevins Library

The Nevins Library invites you to

Join us in the Garden for a night

with Andy & Judy, a Boston area folk duo,

as they play popular folk covers as well as their original songs.  

Tuesday July 19th,  6:30-7:30pm

This will be a fun event for the entire family!  Before the concert, take the kids on a storytime walk around the library grounds to read about the funny antics of a family of ducks and a hairy companion in the picture book Do Like a Duck Does by Judy Hindley.  Then, sit back and enjoy the music, flowers, and whimsical engravings in our magical Children’s Garden.

* Rain location will be in the Great Hall *
