Overbooked: Adult Non-Fiction Book Group

We’re excited to introduce Overbooked, our new adult non-fiction book group! Each month we’ll read recently published non-fiction titles covering an expansive range of topics. And since we know your time is precious, we promise to never pick anything over 400 pages!

This group will meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. We will meet via Zoom until further notice. Please contact reference librarian ShanTil at syell@northreadingma.gov to receive your Zoom invitation.
