Over the next couple of weeks we are making a switch to a new calendar & room booking system.
We greatly appreciate your patience as we make this transition. If you experience difficulties accessing our calendar or requesting a meeting room please contact your local library for assistance.

If you were diagnosed with a serious life-limiting illness, what would be the things that would matter most to you and who would you want to know?
Each library will host a screening for the FRONTLINE film "Being Mortal," followed by a panel discussion. The 60-minute film was produced by the WGBH Educational Foundation in Boston. The Newcastle Public Library's presentation will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 21. Scholar Cynthia Thomas will lead the post-film discussion.
Being Mortal was the 2015 Indies Choice Book Award winner in the Adult Non-Fiction category. The author also is the recipient of the Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing about Science and two national magazine awards.
Sponsors for this year's PLS Big Read are the Pioneer Library System Foundation and the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation.
