Marshfield Best Reads Community Book Group Meeting
Ventress Memorial Library, Monday, February 27 at 7pm
Calling All Marshfield Book Groups! Marshfield BESTREADS Community Book Group will help you get the titles you want!
Marshfield – Ventress Memorial Library is reaching out to existing Marshfield book groups to tell all about the launch of an innovative book swap program.  “Marshfield Bookgroup Bestseller Swap” will be launched in 2017 to create “bestseller book kits” which will be made available to participating groups. The program will defray the cost of reading the most popular bestsellers from a bookstore and eliminate waiting time for library titles. By joining together, book groups will pool resources to get a substantial discount on the purchase of high-demand bestsellers, titles which will be shared among all the groups in a timely way. Representatives from each Marshfield book group are invited to a meeting at the library on Monday, February 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. to learn more about this new program and how their book group will benefit from it. Register to attend the meeting by contacting librarian Chris Woods at 781-834-5535 or cwoods@ocln.org  (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)
