J.V. Fletcher Adult Book Discussion Group: Thurs., May 10 at 7:30 p.m. Please join us to discuss “The Hello Girls” by Elizabeth Hoffman Cobbs.  Copies of the current reading selection are available for check-out at the Main Desk.  New members are always welcome.  No registration required.

Look for the Library’s entry in the Apple Blossom Parade on Saturday, May 12. The highly anticipated annual Westford Kiwanis Sponsored Apple Blossom Parade will march along Main Street for the 50th time. Traditionally this is the event where the Library Children’s Dept. entry in the Parade “announces” the theme for their upcoming Children’s Summer Reading Program. We hope to see you there.
