Updated (12/10/18 1:21 pm): I removed listings for poetry programs and the Cook Book Club – all of which were scheduled to take place at the Southborough Library this week. The Library had to announce a sudden closure for Tuesday through the weekend. The good news is that the cause is related to progress on repairs to the downstairs facilities. The fumes from painting downstairs have proven to be too strong for people to stick around inside the building. Stay tuned for more on that and rescheduled program times.
