A Weymouth High School graduate of the class of 1998, Laura Bacon will be sharing her experiences as a Peace Corp volunteer in Niger West Africa Thursday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at Tufts Library. The community is welcome to come and be enlightened.

The Tufts Library holds ongoing events and story times. Each Thursday at 10:30 a.m., a Mother Goose story hour welcomes toddlers and preschool age children.

A Mother Daughter Book Discussion group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the children's room. Here, girls in fourth through seventh grade and their mothers share opinions on books. For further information, contact Suzanne Mundy at 781-337-1402.

The North Branch Library also offers a story hour for little ones ages three and four. This story time takes place each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The Tufts Library has a historical museum which is open for viewing Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.

The Tufts Library offers meeting space for use by community organizations. The Jones Room and The Canoe Room are available. A group wishing to make use of this opportunity must fill out a reservation form which may be accessed at and submitted to Tufts Library. Town meetings are often held in these rooms. Today, Wednesday, Dec. 17 at 4 p.m., the Construction Steering Committee is meeting in the Jones Room.

The four Weymouth Public Libraries - Tufts Library, Fogg Library, North Branch Library, and Franklin Pratt Library, are filled with best-sellers. "Trojan Odyssey," a fiction adventure story by Clive Cussler, is a best-seller and is available at all four libraries.

"Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" is a humorous nonfiction book by Al Franken. The book illustrates the political scene and is available at Tufts Library.

Two children's books from a series written by Dave Pilkey landed as best-sellers this week. "Captain Underpants and the Big, Bad Battle of the Bionic Booger Boy": Parts 1 and 2, are children's epics of a superhero who often finds himself in sticky situations. Part 1 is available at Tufts Library, Fogg Library, and Franklin Pratt Library. Part 2 is at all four libraries.

Nora Roberts, the most popular writer right now according to what people are reading, has come out with another best-seller. Following "Key of Light", "Key of Knowledge" is the second thrilling novel of her Key Trilogy.

New York Times reviewers say that Robert's zesty characterizations and fresh, energetic style succeed in drawing readers into this far-fetched tale. "Key of Knowledge" joins "Key of Light" at all four libraries.
