Spend winter break with the library! We have a slew of online programs happening in the next few weeks. We even have appointments to visit us during the day on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Just visit our Event Calendar to book an appointment. Please note that the library will be closed on December 25 and 26.
First on our slate of upcoming programs is an all-ages Animal Crossing program on Monday, December 28 at 1 PM. There’s only one spot left to visit the library’s island, Athenaeum, and meet its occupants Pepper, Reneigh, Patty, Static, and more! You’ll need a Nintendo Switch Online account and Discord to participate. To register for this program, visit our website. To chat about Animal Crossing and learn more about our Animal Crossing program guidelines, join us on Discord! To be friends with the library on Nintendo Switch Online, our friend code is SW-4125-4566-5513.
We still have a few spots left for our writing program for teens and young adults. On Tuesday, December 29 at 3:30, author Bethany Snyder will lead an online writing prompt class. Participants will be encouraged (but not required!) to share their work. Sign up on our website in advance!
Also on Tuesday, December 29 at 7 PM, we’re offering our free meditation class taught by Pepperell resident Brian Findlay, a longtime meditation practitioner. You can find information on how to attend on our Event Calendar.
Have you been missing our in-person Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments? Well, you’re in luck because on Wednesday, December 30, we’ll be hosting our first online tourney! You’ll need a Nintendo Switch Online account and a Discord account to participate. Register on our website and we’ll email you all of the information you need to play.
New year, new day of the week for our LGBTQ+ Youth Group! We’ll be meeting on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 5:30 PM via Zoom. Please register in advance.
Also, in the new year, we’re offering a free Zumba class via Zoom. We’re calling it “Zoomba”! Sign up for the class, which is being held on Saturday, January 9 at 11 AM. Make sure you wear comfortable clothes and have some water handy.
Don’t forget that we still offer curbside pickup. The library is open to the public by appointment: to browse the collection, use a computer, the fax machine, copier, or to study. Click here to book an appointment.
Here are some tips to deal with isolation and quarantine. If you are stuck at home, and there’s anything we can do at the library to help, give us a call at 978-433-0330! Stay safe everybody! And if you miss us, you can watch our virtual Tree Lighting!
