Adult & Meetings

  1. Great Books You May Have Missed! 2018

    February 23, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Whiton Room

    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 23rd at 11 am to get a few new ideas through our annual discussion of some of the great books of 2018!

    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 thornell@ocln.org.

    February 23, 2019, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM @ Activity Room

    Winnie's Great War is a heartwarming imagining of the real journey undertaken by the extraordinary bear who inspired Winnie-the-Pooh.

This is a parent/guardian and child book group for children in 2nd & 3rd grade. Library copies of the book will be available at the children's desk for participants about one month prior to the meeting date. Please read the selected book and reserve your place.
