 An Evening of Stargazing with Aldrich Astronomical Society - In Person
Friday, November 5 at 5:30 p.m.
Join us at the West Boylston Senior Center for an evening of stargazing! A brief presentation will be followed by guided stargazing. So bundle up, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and join us for a fun evening! Please email jwright@cwmars.org at least 24 hours prior to this program to reserve your spot. This program will be geared towards adults and teens.

At Beaman Library, there are graphic novels available for all ages! A number of new titles were recently added to both our adult and young adult graphic novel collections and more titles arrive regularly. While graphic novels are simply enjoyable to read, graphic novels provide a number of other benefits. For example, the illustrations in graphic novels can improve a reader's comprehension by providing the support needed to understand the text. In addition, the need to decode both the text and the illustrations often encourages a reader to slow their reading speed, allowing adequate time to fully interpret the entire page. Finally, graphic novels can provide an engaging format for those more reluctant readers. Next time you are at the Library, take a look at our graphic novels and check one out!
