Here is the schedule for the new Nonfiction Book Discussion Group. We’ll meet on the third Tuesday of each month starting on October 21, at 6:30 p.m. This is after the library has closed, so it is a “Library After Hours” program, cosponsored by “Act II”, an LSTA Equal Access grant administered by the Mass. Board of Library Commissioners.
