The Lynnfield Library runs several monthly clubs for all ages. These programs are a great way to explore your interests, from coloring to reading to knitting, in a low-pressure environment while getting to know your fellow Lynnfield residents. You don’t have to become a “member” of a club in order to join–you’re automatically a member by being part of the library community!
Below you’ll find a list of our current clubs, as well as details about supplies and meetings. We’re adding more clubs and programs all the time, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter and check our calendar for the latest information. Have an idea for a new club or event you’d love to see at the library? Email Abby Porter at firstname.lastname@example.org for Adult events or Lauren Fox at email@example.com for Children’s and Teen events.
We’d also like to thank the Friends of the Lynnfield Library for funding all of the library’s clubs.
