All Summer 2016 through Friday September 2nd, 2016
Hello Norwood readers! We have two great options for adults to take part in summer reading with the Morrill Memorial Library in 2016. Everyone high school-aged or older can take part in both these summer reading activities.
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 September 2 from all these entries for a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card. If you write a book review on your form, we’ll post it (anonymously) in the library and on this page. This way, we can all share book recommendations!
If you’d like a challenge, take part in our Reader’s BINGO. The BINGO sheet can be found here or picked up in the library. 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 a David Bowie READ poster from the American Library Association. Sheets must be turned in by noon on Friday September 2nd.
Questions? Please contact either Nancy Ling (firstname.lastname@example.org, 781-769-0200 x228) or Liz Reed (email@example.com, 781-769-0200 x110). Have fun!
Join stitchers of all types (knitters, crocheters, cross-stitchers, etc.) for Stitch Therapy. Motivate yourself to start or finish a project or to learn a new craft by watching others. This is an informal group of stitchers helping stitchers. No formal instruction is planned.
Stitch Therapy will be held in the Simoni Room unless otherwise noted from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the following Tuesdays:
July 19, August 16, September 20, October 18.
Space is limited; please register for this group by visiting or calling the library, 781-769-0200 x110 or x222. You may also sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our next book will be “A Man Called Ove” by Fredrick Backman. This bestselling Swedish novel is a funny, tragic story about an old curmudgeon and his cat. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk – hurry, they’re going fast! The audio version is available for instant download or streaming on hoopla for Norwood residents. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 7/26 @ 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.
