• Tuesday Poetry Workshops: Nov. 26 at 6:30 PM

    Tuesday Poetry Workshop Flyer   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.

  • Seed Collectors Needed! Harvest Your Seeds Now.

    Seed Collectors Needed Flyer      The Seed Exchange at the Southborough Library is now looking for residents to harvest their herbs, flowers and vegtables to share with others. We hope to develop a network of seed savers to create locally adapted varieties to preserve genetic diversity. Seed saving is something humans have done for over 10,000 years. It's a great way to share the abundance of our community. Southborough Access Media will be featuring the project in a TV spot soon.

       Attention Seed Collectors: Anyone who is collecting seeds: we ask that you keep them separated by species, put them in an envelope or paper bag, and drop them off at the Southborough Library to Pat Ellis or Ryan Donovan
  • Art Exhibition: SciStories - Medicine Illustrated

    SciStories Medicine Illustrated

       Scientific illustration is an emerging, specialized field that takes abstract scientific discoveries and visualizes them in evocative and accurate ways. Southborough resident Sigrid Knemeyer is a luminary in this field, having created cover art for publications such as Nature, Science, and Cell.
       Opening Reception is on Saturday, November 23, 2:00 - 4:00 pm. Sigrid will be available to share her experience and knowledge of the industry, and her work will remain on display through February. As an accompaniment to her art, we have prepared a display about the history of medical illustration and traditional tools of the trade in the downstairs display cabinet. Sponsored by the Southborough Cultural Arts Council.
