The large Reference collection is known for its emphasis on Lynn history, genealogy, the Civil War, business and law. The Circulation Department keeps current with all the best sellers.

Movie Night Book Club

The Lynn Public Library’s Adult Circulation Department is proud to introduce our newest program, Movie Night Book Club.

This book club will meet once each month to discuss books that have been adapted into a movie. Interested patrons will be provided a copy of the book to read, as well as a copy of the movie to view. At the meeting, we will talk about the similarities, differences, what we liked/didn’t like, and more. Our next meeting will be MONDAY, June 10th at 6:30PM. We’ll be reading/viewing Where’d You Go, Bernadette. Copies of the book and DVD are available now! If you are an adult patron (must be 18+) who is interested in participating in our Movie Night Book Club, please stop by the main desk to register and pick up your copies of the book and movie.
