Libraries Rock! Adult Summer Reading Program

Register now for the Adult Summer Reading Program which starts on June 25th!  This year’s theme is Libraries Rock!  Your summer reading goal is up to you: choose to read 1, 3, or 5 books this summer, to read a particular title, or to join a book club.  By signing up you are automatically entered into our weekly raffle where you can win a $25 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. You will also be entered into the August 11th Grand Prize Drawing for a gift certificate to have a fabulous night out at a local restaurant! Fill out an entry form and raffle ticket at the Information Services Desk, or you can call us at 978-399-2304, or register here and we’ll fill out your paper form and ticket for you.  Once you complete your self-appointed reading goal, come to the Information Services desk to pick up your coupon for a free ice cream cone at Kimball Farm. Check out some new titles and become a reader who rocks! The Adult Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the J. V. Fletcher Library, Inc. and is for Westford residents and non-resident members of the Friends.

Digital Photography & Video with Your Smart Device
Not sure what to do with your smartphone photos?  Learn how to take better photos and video with your smartphone or tablet with this interactive class. During this workshop, you will learn why and how we take photos, and how the type of phone we use affects how we edit and store them.  Whether you plan to print, create digital slideshows, publish photo books, or post to social media, you still need to backup and organize your photos.  Each student will leave class with a personal photo management plan. Register here or in Information Services. Open to all ages. Generously funded by the Friends of the Library.
