MPL History Book Club

MPL History Book Club

– First Wednesdays, 7:00pm –

Join a lively discussion group focused on history!  A subject is determined each month and participants read a non-fiction history book related to the topic.  New readers are welcome to join and experience history from many points of view on one topic.  No other history book club offers this unique approach!


November Topic: Veterans Day

November Meeting Date: Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 7:00pm – In Person/Zoom Hybrid Meeting

Everyone is welcome, whether they read a book and want to share or they just want to listen and learn!

The November topic is Veterans Day.  Readers should pick a particular aspect of Veterans Day to focus on.  Perhaps it is a specific veteran you wish to read about, veterans from a specific war or the origins of Veterans Day.  Those who have served their country have incredible stories to tell and this discussion will be a chance to share what you discover!

Need help finding a book?  Checkout a sampling of Melrose-owned books available through the library to get you started.  When in doubt, please contact the library ( or 781-665-2313).  The library is once again open to patrons, no appointments needed so come roam the stacks!  Alternatively, the library also offers e-books and e-audiobooks through Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla.

The in person meeting will take place on the main floor in the Dennis J. Kelley Room, located off of the main check out area.  For those not able to attend in person, we are also offering remote access via Zoom.  Regardless of how you will be attending, please sign up using the Library Event Calendar so the library can accommodate all those planning to participate.
