North Andover Reads: First Neighbors, Still Neighbors

Welcome to North Andover Reads Fall 2021! – North Andover Reads: First Neighbors, Still Neighbors

North Andover Reads is a joint effort of the Stevens Memorial Library and the North Andover School District. Each year, books, programs, exhibits and more are chosen around a particular theme and highlight our R.A.I.S.E. initiative. This year North Andover Reads recognizes and celebrates our first neighbors, who are still our neighbors: the Indigenous Peoples. Through reading and talking, we hope to gain knowledge, leading to both empathy and respect.

Please join us. Everyone is welcome to read, attend a program, and visit exhibits.



Adults & Teens are reading Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley  , extra digital copies are available for Stevens Memorial Library card holders!
