What’s happening at the
Stoneham Public Library
About the upcoming solar eclipse:
The Stoneham Public Library does not have any eclipse glasses at this time, but we are looking into it. We have been getting numerous calls from patrons, and we are sorry we cannot provide this service. We will notify you if something changes!
Please note that NASA as well as other regional groups are strongly urging people to be sure they are obtaining glasses which are truly safe to view the sun during such a momentous event. Please see the attached press release from NASA.
We want all of our patrons, visitors, and residents to be safe, whether at the Library or enjoying family, friends, and nature. Please let us know if you want to learn more about this phenomena, the planets and other astronomical occurrences.
The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Stoneham Public Library are challenging residents of the community to read at least four books this summer and share their experience with others! Join the conversation and tell us…
#Whats Your Four
Post the titles and authors of your four books to the Stoneham Public Library’s Facebook page, along with a picture of yourself reading if you would like!
Write the names of the four books you read on a slip of paper provided by the Library.
**Remember to use the hashtag #WhatsYourFour and tag a friend and ask them to share their four!**
Look for a final tally after Labor Day and see what four books were the most popular! Posts can be made to our Facebook page and slips can be filled out until Mon Aug 28th!
