COMBAT ZONE: The Stripped Down Story of Boston's Most Notorious Neighborhood.

The Friends of the North End Library are once again presenting an intriguing book talk. Author, Stephanie Schorow, will be at the North End Library to talk about her book, Inside The Combat Zone. Her presentation will tell about ‘the Stripped Down Story of Boston’s Most Notorious Neighborhood’.  Boston history is story of opposites. How does a neighborhood with its roots in Puritan Boston become ‘one of the most notorious adult entertainment districts in the nation? Don’t miss this book talk!
The Friends’ programs have been standing room only this year, so please come a few minutes early to find a good seat. 


Spring Open House

April 3rd-6th

Mark your calendar for a special event! The Friends of the North End Library (FONEL) invite you to see “Books in Bloom” at the North End Library’s Spring Open House from Wednesday April 3rd at 5:00PM thru Saturday, April 6th at 1:30PM.
Books in Bloom is a special springtime event that pairs floral arrangements inspired by the cover, title or content of a book. This year several local floral designers will create floral interpretations of their favorite book which will be displayed throughout the North End Library. 
There will be a live demonstration by Roche Bros. Floral Designer, Michelle Clifford on Wednesday evening April 3rd from 6:30 - 7:30PM. She will give some clever ideas and demonstrate what to do at home with a store-bought bouquet.
Drop in during the Spring Open House for informal tours by the Friends of the North End Library to see our celebration of live flowers and to acquaint you with our unique library and learn about the many excellent services the library has to offer or just walk at your leisure among the beautiful bouquets! Pick up a hand out of all the available resources at the North End Library.
This is a not to be missed creative and informative experience.  The event has been organized and generously funded by the Friends of the North End Library.
Books In Bloom will be open to the public from  Wednesday April 3rd at 1:00PM until Saturday, April 6th at 1:30PM during the usual library hours.
