Norwell Reads 2016 Brochure



      Norwell Reads has become an annual community activity that engages residents of all ages, backgrounds and interests. Each year the theme of the selected book creates natural collaborative opportunities between the public library and other community organizations and individuals.

      We have had many contributors in years' past, including the Norwell Council on Aging, Norwell Cultural Council, Friends of Norwell Public Library, Scituate Federal Savings Bank, Norwell Fire Department,  and numerous other professionals and community members who act as presenters, consultants and volunteers. Newcomers are always welcome to assist with Norwell Reads!
