October 19th @ 7:00 pm Nevins Library welcomes Rory O'Brien's
Rory grew up in New England, surrounded by books, history, and the long shadows of Poe, Hawthorne, and Lovecraft.
He spent months haunting the streets of Salem, speaking with tourists, townies, witches, cops, and business owners. He spent a ridiculous amount of money in kitschy tourist attractions, read every guidebook he could get his hands on, and took every walking tour in town ... all in the name of "research." His book Gallows Hill will be available for purchase.

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!

I always bring out of towners here to our library. Its beautiful! The stained glass, the woodwork, the fireplaces, the children's section. Everyone Ive brought here is favorably impressed! Lynn R.
I love the Nevins Memorial Library, as does my son! The staff is great, the book & DVD selection is great, the activities throughout the year are great! This is simply a great place to visit! Linda D.
I love going to the Nevins Library! Everyone that works there is friendly and really seem to enjoy their jobs. I love stopping in after errands on my days off from work to browse and borrow several books and magazines to keep myself entertained in the evening when there's nothing on tv and I'm tired of reading my career journals.

The Nevins is a gorgeous place and on a lonely, cold afternoon sitting by the "fire" place reading was wonderful. The librarians are amazing and interesting ladies, and I always feel welcome. I have been to "big city NY, Boston, Chicago libraries and yes they are nice, but Nevins is right up there, both in services and character. Good for you. Donna R.
