Then visit the Library to see what we purchased using our Tech Grant. We will be demonstrating some of our new purchases and you will have an opportunity to check them out!

Thursday, November 10 at 6:30 p.m.
From sports to politics, food to finance, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers us fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed. Please sign up for this program. Space is limited. To sign up for this program during our carpet closing, email Please indicate the name of each individual who will be attending and a contact phone number.
