Woburn Public Library Logo

The Woburn Public Library and SCI Woburn are teaming up to bring another unique opportunity to the community: The Human Library.

…Wait.  What?

Well. It’s sort of an interesting thing. This event aims to create a safe space where one-on-one dialogue can lead to greater understanding, compassion and acceptance. Our goal, here, is to encourage community members (our “books” share their stories with other community members (“readers”, if you like) in short, one-on-one conversations.

Youth Shoveling

We are seeking volunteers to help rake leaves and shovel snow for Woburn residents in need. For the past several years we have worked along side the Woburn Senior Center to identify people in need and match them with volunteers across Woburn. We are working to find some matches again this year. If you are able to volunteer this year to rake leaves or shovel out a senior in a neighborhood near you, please click here email Jenna and she will work to match you with someone that is in need.
