Plan now for Your Spring Garden
Saturday, November 10, 10:30am

It’s never too early to think spring! Local gardener Sieglinde Aigner-Crooks (aka Siegi) will talk about prepping your spring bulb garden for early beauty, the magic of garlic, and the use and benefits of raised beds. Sample delicious, homemade garlic bread! $10 bags of assorted spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils, snow drops, crocus) will be sold to benefit the Friends of the Rowley Library. Bring your questions! Every participant will be entered in a free raffle to win a pretty planter of purple asters for planting in your perennial garden or by your mailbox. Delight in these perennially returning blooms late in the fall when most other blooms have faded.


Monday Matinee
Monday, Nov. 26, 1 pm 

PG-13 - Starring Constance Wu, Henry Golding, & Michelle Yeoh


Join us for this crazy fun movie! A woman discovers her boyfriend comes from the most wealthy, prominent family in Singapore. Along the way, she must stand up to his judgmental mother, who wants nothing more than to break them up. Based on the bestselling book!

Rowley Book Club to meet Thursday, December 6, 6:30 pm

Join the Rowley Library Book Club for a discussion of The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich, a different kind of murder mystery. The author believes she is anti-death penalty- until she starts her summer job at a law firm, and starts to work on the case of Ricky Langley. As she delves into the complicated truth of his story, she is forced to deal with her own family history, and the reality of a legal system more colored by our own pasts than we’d like to believe. Pick up a book at the Rowley Library or order your own copy here, then join us for a discussion on Thursday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m.  For more information on our book club and a list of future titles, click here.  The Rowley Library is located at 141 Main St., Rowley, and is completely accessible.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Rowley Library.
