Rowley Library

Rowley Book Club to meet Thursday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m.
The Rowley Book Club is reading The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd this month.  The story starts in Charleston in the early nineteenth century, when young Sarah receives a gift: a slave named Hetty. We follow their stories for the next 35 years as they each try to find their place in the world they live in. Kidd was inspired by the true story of early-nineteenth-century abolitionist and suffragist Sarah Grimke. Pick up a copy of the book at the library, or click here to reserve one, then join us for a discussion on Thursday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m.

The The Rowley Public Library is participating in the Commonwealth eBook Collections. Click here to get started, or call 978-948-2850 for more information. This is a new statewide program in addition to our OverDrive ebook subscription through the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. There are currently over 177,000 titles in the collections.
