June and July Patron Picks
It’s always interesting to see what people are reading and enjoying. Below are the patron picks from June and July. If you read a great book while sitting on the beach or flying to a fantastic destination, be sure to put it in the Awesome Box at the ground floor checkout desk or grab a yellow “What Did You Think” form at one of the service desks or complete the online Patron Review Form. Don’t forget about the items you have downloaded or streamed on Overdrive or Hoopla. Even if we can’t display a physical copy, we can include your review.
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.

The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson
My book club read this book and I was entranced. The author combined historical background and stats regarding the Great migration with the stories of three Black individuals who migrated from the racism of the South to the North and West in three different decades. It was a wonderful balance of history and memoir.

Good job to the person who is choosing Science Fiction titles. I enjoyed all the new Science Fiction books. They introduced me to new authors.
