The Morrill Memorial Library is excited to announce a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. The library’s $7500 federal IMLS/LSTA grant will be used for a One Book – One Community project during six weeks this spring – March 25 through May 7. The grant will help finance publicity materials, library equipment, programs and speakers, and the “Following Atticus” book in many formats.
Charlotte Canelli, Library Director is pleased to be able to offer a One Book-One Community project to the Norwood community. With a team of library staff, she has been working to develop a program that will include book discussion groups, an author visit, and various programs with speakers that focus on the adventures presented in the book “Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship” by Tom Ryan. Ryan, who lives in Jackson, New Hampshire, is scheduled to visit the Norwood community in late March.
Posters, flyers, Facebook and website updates will be posted as the program is developed this spring.
