What’s Happening at the Library? – April 22 Edition

-

WESTFORD – Assistant Library Director Kristina Leedberg has shared the most recent edition of “What’s Happening at the Library?” with WestfordCAT.

Unless otherwise noted, programs are generously funded by the Friends of the Library, Inc.

Director’s Corner: Libraries are thriving! According to a recent study by WordsRated, over 174 million people in the US have library cards – or almost 54% of the population! In Westford, 75% of the 24,643 residents have library cards – using a service 24/7 which constitutes 1.4% of the overall Town budget.

Mystery Book Club: Mon., April 25th at 2:00 p.m. We’ll meet on the library’s back lawn! Please bring your own lawn chair. If it rains, we’ll meet on Zoom, and members will be emailed the link that morning. We’ll discuss The Secret Place by Tana French. Email Sarah at sregan@westfordma.gov with any questions. 

Virtual Pajama Storytime: Mon., April 25 at 6:30 p.m.  Pajama Time meets once a month on a Monday evening for children ages 3 to 7. Register for each night separately up to 6 pm. Get into those pajamas and grab a favorite stuffed animal or blanket and Zoom in. Register here.

JVF Teen Lounge: Fri., April 29 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Meet up in the library Meeting Room for a Friday afternoon lounge. Come prepared to do anything you want: bring your sketchbook, favorite card game, whatever you’re reading right now – or just bring yourself! We’ll have a build-your-own boba bar and plenty of things to do. Hope to see you there! No registration required.

Virtual Discover India Series: Mon., May 2 & 9, all at 7:00 p.m. Hosted by the India Association of Greater Boston, this series of four virtual programs explores some of India’s exciting facts, places, people, and architecture. For middle schoolers, teens, and adults.  Register through the Library Events Calendar to receive a single Zoom link for all four programs. 

Staff Recommends: Heather Nevits, who works at the Circulation Desk, is an avid reader, and will always greet you with a smile, recommends Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. “PACHINKO follows one Korean family through the generations, beginning in early 1900s Korea with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor yet proud family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens to shame them all. Deserted by her lover, Sunja is saved when a young tubercular minister offers to marry and bring her to Japan. So begins a sweeping saga of an exceptional family in exile from its homeland and caught in the indifferent arc of history. Through desperate struggles and hard-won triumphs, its members are bound together by deep roots as they face enduring questions of faith, family, and identity”.
