Are you looking for something good to read? Is your list of recommended books so long you just don’t know where to start? If you’re like the rest of us, you tend to read the same authors and styles over and over again. So come to the Hingham Public Library on Saturday February 24th at 11 am to get a few new ideas through our annual discussion of some of the great books of 2017!
Peter Thornell, Collection Development Librarian and Readers’ Advisor, will present numerous titles from several different genres of both fiction and non-fiction. Those attending are always welcome to share their thoughts on their own list of “must read” titles. Refreshments will be available.
For more information, please visit the Reference Desk, call us at 781-741-1405, x1404, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
