Nevins Buzz Blog

The Readers’ Advisory Team at the Nevins Memorial Library is happy to present the Nevins Buzz Blog as another resource for discovering interesting reading material. Enjoy book reviews, learn what the Nevins Library staff is reading, and receive literary news that encourages enrichment and literacy in the Methuen community.

We welcome comments and suggestions. We aim to bring the Library, the promotion of literacy, and a sense of community to you—whether you’re at home or on the go—in a fun, interactive way. We hope you enjoy reading the Nevins Buzz Blog.
