Cradles to Crayons Pajama Drive!

February 1st through March 15th, 2016

PJ DriveThe Morrill Memorial Library is partnering with Cradles to Crayons and the Boston Bruins for the 9th Annual PJ Drive to provide new pajamas for local children in need all across the Commonwealth. We’re asking for new children’s pajamas, all sizes! Please leave them in the donation box on the first floor. Thank you for helping us keep children feeling warm, safe, valued, and ready to learn.

This year you can double your donation simply by donating a pair! An anonymous donor has offered to match* each pair of pajamas with another pair. Please help us to double or triple our donations from last year (82).

*Up to 200 pair.

“Serial” Podcast Listen & Discussion Group

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 at 7:00 pm
And every following Wednesday evening through late-March

Chief_BrooksSeason 1, Episode 7

Chief William Brooks III of the Norwood Police Department will be joining us as a guest speaker on 2/17/16! Curious about Chief Brooks’ connection to Serial? Click here to catch up on past episodes of Serial and join us to find out! Read more about Chief Brooks here.


serialCalling all mystery-lovers! Each Wednesday evening in early 2016 we’ll be meeting to listen to an episode of the wildly popular podcast, “Serial.” Produced by NPR’s This American Life, “Serial” investigates a real-life crime case, sifting through witness testimony, evidence, the time line, and expert theories. Each short episode is similar to a radio-show segment, and we’ll listen together then discuss what we’ve just heard. There will be hot cocoa and other refreshments, and no registration is required. Feel free to bring your own quiet activities, such as knitting and coloring books, to work on while we listen to the episodes. Call 781-769-0200 x110 or email if you have any questions.

If we have to cancel due to weather, we’ll bump that night’s episode to the next week. If we meet but you can’t make it, come another day when the weather abates and we can catch you up, or show you how to listen at home. And, if the need arises, we may add a daytime session – we’ll see where the winter takes us!
