Holiday Bundles from Your Friends!

Can we help you with your shopping this holiday season? Friends board member Roberta Neuman will personally curate holiday book bundles for you by request.

Contact Roberta at and let her know what you’re looking for (mysteries? cookbooks? children’s books?) and she will customize selections just for you.

Giftable bundles of five titles are $25 (cash or check made out to the Friends of the Beverly Public Library) and even come wrapped in a bow. Delivery options are available. This service is being offered through December 22.

Six-Word Memoirs

Brevity is the soul of wit. William Shakespeare

Tell us your pandemic story in six words. We want to preserve Beverly’s collective experience of 2020, a most unusual year. Add to Beverly’s pandemic stories by submitting yours. We will submit your entries to the Six-Word Memoirs website and add them to our local history collection.

Submit your entries by Thursday, December 31.

Check out some of these staff examples:

Jerusha holds a sign reading "Bad kitty! Stop it! Stop! Stop" Joe holds a sign reading "Adapt, modify balance, alter, adjust patience."
