MemorizeBest has made it easier than ever to learn and use this method. You will see every person and their name more vividly--and remember their name with surprising ease.


On Saturday, October 21st, eight libraries, across three library networks, including the Woburn Public Library, are banding together to put on a Library Crawl.  From 10AM - 3PM, library enthusiasts are invited to take a self-guided tour of other area libraries and see what they have to offer their communities.  The Library Crawl includes a scavenger hunt of each library’s unique features, prizes (while supplies last), and light refreshments. 

Here’s how it works: 

Jerry Thornton is the author of “From Darkness to Dynasty: The First Forty Years of the New England Patriots.” From their humble beginnings as a team bought with rainy-day money by a man who had no idea what he was doing, to the fateful season that saw them win their first Super Bowl, Thornton shares the wild, humiliating, unbelievable and wonderful stories that comprised the first 40 years of what would ultimately become the most dominant franchise in NFL history. Brief Friends’ Annual Meeting from 6:45 to 7 p.m. before beginning the talk at 7 p.m. on October 17th.


Film screening and talk on Theo Who Lived - the journalist held captive by Al-Qaeda for two years shares his incredible story of uncompromising humanity. The event takes place on September 27, 2017. Appetizers and cash bar will go from 6:30-7:30PM, the film screening will begin at 7:30PM.

Tickets are free but space is limited. Reserve your tickets by visiting woburnpubliclibrary.org, or by stopping by the library at 36 Cummings Park.
