Thursday September 20th at 7pm – Author Talk With Paul Tremblay – The Cabin at the end of the World

The Cabin at the End of the World adds an inventive twist to the home invasion horror story in a heart-palpitating novel of psychological suspense. It’s a tense, gripping tale of paranoia, sacrifice, apocalypse, and survival that escalates to a shattering conclusion, one in which the fate of a loving family and quite possibly all of humanity are entwined.

Paul Tremblay’s novels have won multiple awards, and his essays and short fiction have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly online, and numerous year’s-best anthologies. He has a master’s degree in mathematics and lives outside of Boston with his family.

This program will take place at the Kingston Council on Aging located at 30 Evergreen Street in Kingston.  To register for this author talk, click on the button below.  For more information, contact the library at 781-585-0517 x6279

October 1st at 7 PM- Invasive Species of the Northeast with Bob Michelson

Bob Michelson will present “Invasive Species of the Northeast” on Monday, October 1 at 7PM  at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street.

In this program, attendees will learn about several invasive species that are frequently seen in the Northeast. They will also learn how to help stop the spread f these non-native species to the area.

Some animals have been local for over 100 years, and others are moving their way into the local environment. Nonindigenous species have forever changed the ecosystems of the Northeast.

Robert Michelson, of Braintree, has been a professional photographer and videographer since 1974. He is the owner of Photography By Michelson Inc.  He was also the senior New England environmental news correspondent for Underwater USA, a national monthly newspaper for SCUBA divers from 1988-92  and a regular science contributor to the Patriot Ledger, a large regional daily newspaper in Massachusetts from 1992-94

Little Free Libraries!

What is a little free library?
A Little Free Library is a “take a book, return a book” free book exchange. They come in many shapes and sizes, but the most common version is a small wooden box of books. Anyone may take a book or bring a book to share. Little Free Library book exchanges have a unique, personal touch. There is an understanding that real people are sharing their favorite books with their community.

Where are the little free libraries located?
The Little Free Libraries are located in seven different locations around Kingston: Town Hall, Gray’s Beach, The Ah-de-nah, Rocky Nook Brewster Park, The Reed Community Building, Sampson Park, and Kingston Intermediate School.  Libraries were built by the Silver Lake Regional High School Carpentry Program.

How can I donate books?
Once the little free libraries are up and running, simply find one near you and place your donations inside!

The Little Free Libraries are a Kingston Community Fun project, a collaboration of the Library, The Adams Center, Council on Aging & Recreation Departments
