woburn public library

book

On Saturday, October 21st, eight libraries, across three library networks, including the Woburn Public Library, are banding together to put on a Library Crawl.  From 10AM - 3PM, library enthusiasts are invited to take a self-guided tour of other area libraries and see what they have to offer their communities.  The Library Crawl includes a scavenger hunt of each library’s unique features, prizes (while supplies last), and light refreshments. 

Here’s how it works: 

Jerry Thornton is the author of “From Darkness to Dynasty: The First Forty Years of the New England Patriots.” From their humble beginnings as a team bought with rainy-day money by a man who had no idea what he was doing, to the fateful season that saw them win their first Super Bowl, Thornton shares the wild, humiliating, unbelievable and wonderful stories that comprised the first 40 years of what would ultimately become the most dominant franchise in NFL history. Brief Friends’ Annual Meeting from 6:45 to 7 p.m. before beginning the talk at 7 p.m. on October 17th.
