Mattapoisett Free Public Library

New Year, New books! The Mattapoisett Library staff have been working diligently to ensure that the library is ready when the time comes to reopen our doors to browsing, but, until then, we want to make sure patrons have access to all of the library’s newest titles. Starting now, patrons can sign up to receive four titles from our ‘new’ shelves. You can request a theme (i.e. fiction, romance, drama, crime, or nonfiction, history, cookbooks, poetry, etc.) or have the titles be completely random!

            To participate, or if you have any questions, contact us at 508-758-4171 or email us at Please be sure to notify us of any preferences when making a request to participate.

            Well-Read Wednesday: A Nonfiction Book Discussion Group— Join a new nonfiction book club hosted by Mattapoisett Library staff, starting with our first meeting via Zoom on Wednesday, January 27 at 6:30 pm. This discussion group will focus on recently published nonfiction titles of note; suggestions are welcome, though title choice depends on availability at network libraries. The first book selection is “Underland: A Deep Time Journey,” by Robert MacFarlane. Recognized as one of the best nonfiction books of 2019, this book explores the layers of human history as coded in geologic time, from such places as the catacombs in Paris to the icy depths in Greenland.

            Registration is required to get the Zoom link. Copies of the book will be available for pick up upon request. Send an email to, or call the library at 508-758-4171 for more information or to register.
