Peggy Tuttle Award for Library Service Distinction 2019
Nominations are now open for the fifth annual Peggy Tuttle Award for Library Service Distinction. This yearly honor recognizes a library volunteer, staff member, or community member that has dedicated a significant amount of their time into making the library better for the entire Southborough community. Whether they lead a monthly book group or program, serve on the board of The Friends of the Southborough Library, or even suggest what library book to read next, this is a time to celebrate an individual who makes the Southborough Library the unique, dynamic, and wonderful place that it is. Award nominations close March 1, 2019.
Please feel free to print out the nomination form, use the new online form, or e-mail Ryan Donovan at firstname.lastname@example.org with 1-2 paragraphs explaining who you are nominating and why. Only the Library Director and previous award recipients are ineligable. This award is in rememberance of staff member Peggy Tuttle who worked at the Southborough Library for over 30+ years. The Peggy Tuttle Award is supported by the Southborough Library Fund, a donor managed fund under the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts.
Tuesday Poetry Workshops at 6:30 PM
Led by Southborough residents Elliott and Nancy Simons, this regular poetry workshop meets every other week on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month. Sessions start at 6:30 PM until about 8:30 PM. The group is loosely associated with the Worcester County Poetry Association. The group will meet upstairs in the library's Main Floor programming space at a designated back table.
At each session, each participant is asked to bring five copies of their original poetry and distribute them to the group. The poem will be read aloud, and the group will provide constructive feedback. Don't have a poem? No problem. Come stop by and see if this group is for you.
