Join the fourth annual Story Slam!





Guitar concert — The Hampton Trio will perform Sunday, March 17, at 3 p.m. as part of the Boston Classical Guitar Society Concerts Series, featuring original classical guitar, mandolin, and mandola music. In addition to their trio repertoire of arrangements and original works from the baroque to modern eras, the group’s programs may include classical guitar duos by Mark and Beverly Davis and mandolin solos by Robert Margo. These concerts are hosted in partnership with Coastal Heritage Bank.


Evening with the Author – Thursday, March 21, 7 p.m. Join Hingham’s own Bruce Haas for a talk about his new book, “Great Game! D1 College Hockey: People, Places, Perspectives.” Through interviews with former players, coaches, officials, and fans, Haas captures the passion that people have for college hockey, presenting their perspectives in a series of essays focused on men’s Division 1 college hockey that range from team camaraderie and leadership to how officials approach calling a game.


Using Google Earth and Google Maps — Tuesday, March 12, and Thursday, March 14, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Training Room. Participants will learn how to take a trip and street tours of famous landmarks, explore the world in 3-D, and play games using pictures and maps from across the globe without leaving their homes.  Library computers will be available for this lesson, but feel free to bring your laptop. Register online or by calling (781) 741-1405, ext. 1404 for one of the two sessions.


Afternoon with the Author — Saturday, March 9, 2 p.m.  In his popular book, “Boston Marathon History by the Mile,” local bestselling author and 23-time Boston Marathoner Paul Clerici describes the colorful 26.2 mile journey — mile by mile, town by town, story by story.  Join other book fans to hear Clerici bring the race to life with informative, humorous, and enlightening details. Copies will be available for purchase and for signing by the author.


Story Slam — On Sunday, March 10, at 2 p.m. members of the community are invited to participate in the library’s Fourth Annual Story Slam for adults, featuring an “Oops” theme. Come ready to tell a five-minute memorized story on-stage — as serious or as silly as you like, but each must be a real story that meets the time limit and incorporates the theme. Those who wish to simply listen are also welcome as part of the audience and will vote for the best story. No registration required.




Do you love the Library’s Children’s Department and want to help us out?  We are looking for adult volunteers who would be willing to donate 1 hour per week to help us keep our books in order! Simple alphabetizing skills are all that is needed. Volunteer and application information can be found online at hinghamlibrary.org under About the Library/Volunteer or come to the front desk and ask for an application. Thank you!
