Southborough Library Community Survey 2018
The Southborough Library is once again requesting community feedback. Do you want more library programs? Do you know about our meeting rooms? What would you like to see at the library? Let us know! This survey can be filled out online or by printing out a copy and returning it the library's main floor circulation desk. Survey closes November 21, 2018.
The library is planning more long range planning updates in early 2019.

Tuesday Poetry Workshops at 6:30 PM
Led by Southborough residents Elliott and Nancy Simons, this regular poetry workshop meets every other week on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Sessions start at 6:30 PM until about 8:30 PM. The group is loosely associated with the Worcester County Poetry Association. The group will meet upstairs in the library's Main Floor programming space at a designated back table.
At each session, each participant is asked to bring five copies of their original poetry and distribute them to the group. The poem will be read aloud, and the group will provide constructive feedback. Don't have a poem? No problem. Come stop by and see if this group is for you.
Cook Book Club on December 12 at 6:30 PM
It's time for something delicious. On the second Wednesday of every month, join us at the Southborough Library for a tasty, new Cook Book Club! It meets upstairs at 6:30 PM.
Those interested - and who hopefully join up! - each cook a different dish from the selected cook book of the month. To avoid overlap, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your selection.
December 12 at 6:30 PM is the club's final meeting for the year upstairs with Marianna. The first cook book selection is BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts by Stella Parks. We hope that you can join us and improve your cooking skills.
Let's Play! Chess - Every Other Saturday at 2:00 PM
The Southborough Library is excited to pilot a “Let’s Play!” Saturday Chess program this fall. This program is geared toward players ages 12+ who are interested in learning beginner chess skills. The group will be led by the library's new Assistant Director & Young Adult Librarian Aileen Sanchez-Himes.
The group meets every other Saturday through December from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM on the Main Floor upstairs. A fun, friendly chess tournament where attendees can test their skills will be held on November 17. Ages 12 & Up are welcome!
The library would like to thank the Roumiantsev Family for their donation of materials for these programs.
