Great Reads Book Club

Great Reads Book Club meets at 11:00 am on the first Wednesday of each month at the library. Book selections are quality, well-reviewed books, fiction and nonfiction, that might not have made the best-seller list but shouldn't be missed.

To register, please call the library at 781-545-8727, or come in and sign up at the Reference Desk in the library.
