Tuesday, June 28th, 2016 at 7:30 pm

difference_engineOur next book will be “The Difference Engine” by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. This science fiction classic set the conventions for the steampunk subgenre. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 6/28 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for TOT_matthe 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.

yarnFellow knitters and crocheters: are you swamped by swatches? Incensed by increases? Peeved at patterns? In knots over SL1 K2TOG PSSO? Oh, and do you have a gift deadline? We can help! The knitters and crocheters of the Morrill Memorial Library will be available by appointment to help with knitting and crochet quandaries. Please bring all of the materials for your project, including needles and patterns. Also, please let us know ahead of time what sort of project you’d like help with, in case we need to look up a new technique. A second pair of eyes can’t hurt!

Please contact Adult Services Librarian Liz Reed to schedule all appointments and to answer any questions about this service. Liz can be reached at 781-769-0200 x110 or lreed@minlib.net.
