Meet a Librarian!
What is the best way to get to know a librarian? By getting them to dish about books, of course! Each month, we will introduce you to one of the librarians of the Chelmsford Public Library. This month, we talked to our Head of Youth Services, Sara Dempster!
Jess and Deanna shared some new titles coming into the library over the next month, and attendees (readers just like you!) told us what they have been reading and recommending. The list below has something for everyone – twisty summer thrillers, gripping historical fiction, feel-good stories, family sagas, and even a few interesting nonfiction titles.
One of our favorite things about summer is having a little bit more time to read, whether it is packing a paperback in with the sunscreen, or enjoying the extra daylight to read on the deck after dinner. We know you feel the same way! We also know that while reading is always good summertime fun, reading to win prizes is even better!
Currently, all groups are meeting on Zoom unless otherwise noted.
While we’re always ready to provide you with recommendations for new books, you might consider trying one of our book groups for an opportunity to read and share books you might not otherwise consider. While we’re not meeting in person, these groups have been very active virtually, connecting and sharing great books with each other while we’re all staying home. All of our groups are welcoming new members.
