Writers at the Crossroads

One area library is hoping to recruit new readers.

Crossroads Library in Cambridge hosted its Second Annual "Writers at the Crossroads" event on Saturday. 17 local authors gathered to read samples of their work to the public. Organizer J. Paulette Foshey said their goal was to show adults how much fun the library can be.

"Usually adults think the library is for research, they have the internet now, and children, and they don’t come in and read for enjoyment I think people’s lives are a little too busy for that," said Forshey.

She said there are resources the library can provide that the internet cannot.

"There is research that you can’t find on the internet, there are books that aren’t available, and then all the help that the library can give you, telling you about programs in the area and getting information through the state for you," she said.
