Book Club Kits

The library has launched a collection of Book Club Kits. Book Club Kits are designed for book clubs and other groups to read and discuss the same book. The kits include ten copies of the book and a discussion guide in a clear plastic tote. The kit is checked out to one group member who is responsible for all the materials.

Located with our Library of Things collection on the second floor, grab a kit from the shelf or place one on hold in the catalog.

January/February Art Exhibit

Festivals and Folklore of Trinidad, West Indies by Indra Persad Milowe

Hanuman retrieves Sanjeevani

This month we welcome an exhibit of paintings by Indra Persad Milowe, a Trinidad born visual artist living and working in Salem, MA. She states, “My works bring to life many of my childhood memories of growing up in Trinidad, West Indies in the 1950’s and 1960’s. I decided to go back to art during my retirement, I prefer working on canvas with multicoloured and gold acrylic paints.” Visit her website.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours, when community meetings or library programs are not in progress. Find it in the Sohier Room.
