Jan. 12

Virtual Book Discussion: Inside the O’Briens, 1:30 p.m.

The O’Briens are an Irish Catholic family living in Boston. Joe, the father, is a cop, and when he is diagnosed with Huntington’s, he must somehow tell his wife and four grown children and learn to live with the disease. Contact Marjorie for the Go To Meeting Link.

Jan. 25

Virtual Book Discussion: Back when we were grownups, 6 p.m.

Rebecca Davitch, the heroine (and heroine is exactly the right word) realizes that she has become the “wrong person.” No longer the “serene and dignified young woman” she was at 20, at 53 Rebecca finds she has become family caretaker and cheerleader, a woman with a “style of dress edging dangerously close to Bag Lady.” So she tries to do something about it. Contact Marjorie for the Go To Meeting Link.

SERVICES

Computers available for the public

The library will have two public internet computers available. Spaces need to be reserved by calling 508-699-0122 for a 30-minute slot. Fifteen minutes will be set aside between sessions so the keyboards can be switched out and the mouses cleaned. If time is needed for job applications, arrangements can be made. Earphones are not supplied at the library. None of the computers have video cameras or microphones. Printing is available and staff can also help print from a phone.
