Check this post for updates on topics and dates for 2022. Meetings are held one Tuesday per month from 10-12 AM EST, though we often wrap up around 11:15. For the last year, we have been alternating a traditional benchmark reading and discussion meeting with an “around the table” check-in meeting where we talk about what we’ve been reading, listening to, and watching.
All meetings are open to all and will be held remotely using the free videoconferencing software Jitsi at this link. Registration is not required, but may be accessed through the Massachusetts Library System calendar at the links below. Join our discussion list by sending an email to this address.
