Around the World in 80 Books

As the kids go back to school and the air turns crisp, we have more books to transport you to countries around the globe.  If you are short on time, consider our book from Ireland. It is only 118 pages, but is on the Booker Prize short list. The author representing the Dominican Republic has written books for adults, children, and young adults and has been honored with multiple awards. Our Peruvian author has also won awards, and we have several of his books in both English and Spanish. Our monthly selection features books from Poland, Senegal, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, and Zambia as well.

The library is open for browsing. Masks are optional. If you are not comfortable entering the library, you can request items for curbside pickup during our regular hours (Monday-Thursday 9-9; Friday and Saturday 9-5). To reserve a book, place a request in the online catalog, fill out a request form, or call the reference desk at 978-674-4121. If you love these books, you can write a review or place them in the “Awesome Box” at the ground floor checkout desk.
