The Nevins Library is very excited to announce our latest project: The Nevins Buzz Blog! Check it out here: http://nevinsbuzz.wordpress.com/ We expect to have lots of great information for you here about library news, book reviews and recommendations, and lots lots more!!
So, do you ever hear people say that nobody goes to libraries anymore? Well, the only people that say that are people that don't go to libraries! Because if you come to the Nevins Library you know how busy we are...and it turns out that Libraries are the hottest spots in most towns in Massachusetts. Check out this infographic that shows you how our Commonwealth's Libraries stack up against some pretty famous tourist attractions! We would appreciate your feedback.

What people are saying.. The library is not only a place for music, movies, games, books, computer use,reference materials, history information,and various research documents which have the ability for all ages to learn, grow and empower people with the knowledge of a variety of genres/subjects, etc. The library offers informational lessons, craft making times, story times, and other times dedicated to enrich and improve the lives of people of any age through the power of our local library resources. My family and I love and enjoy our library and the people who work there-we feel so lucky to have the ability to 'tap' into this valuable hotspot right in our own city. I have not only encouraged our children to engage in library actives but have encouraged many others to do the same. Try your local library-you will be surprised at what they have to offer and you will be glad you did. They have something for everyone. Oh and did I mention how beautiful the architectural design of our particular library has? Michelle D.
The Nevins Library is our second home! I have been coming here weekly, sometimes several times a week, since my oldest child started Babies 'n Books over 15 years ago. The variety of programs for young and old, the ability to request books from afar, the endless entertainment possibilities all make the Nevins hugely popular,but the people behind the desks make it Home. :) Thanks Nevins Memorial Library for all you do for me and my family! Judy M.

The staff of Nevins Library mourns the passing of our colleague Maureen Tulley. Maureen worked as a Reference Librarian for the past 13 years and was well loved by both staff and patrons. They say patience is a virtue and that was one of Maureen's gifts. Maureen's unique perspective enhanced her ability to solve problems and help patrons. We will miss her kind and gentle nature and her dogged ability to locate missing books. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Tulley and Burns families in this extremely difiicult time.
