The library will be closed on Monday, 5/27, in honor of Memorial Day.

Longtime residents are invited to build community ties by sharing a meal with those from the newer immigrant community.

The goal of #WoburnUnites Through Cultural Connections is to build ties between Woburn’s longtime residents and the newer immigrant community using food and conversation as a basis for people to learn about the different cultures represented throughout the community. The project will start with a Cultural Connections Dinner the evening of Tuesday, October 16. To encourage cross-cultural learning and to welcome newcomers, there will be 50 seats available to recent immigrants and other newcomers (contact Elaine Dougherty at the International Learning Center | 781-935-6499 | to register) and 50 seats to residents of Woburn who have been here longer. Attendees will sit at tables arranged to ensure they have a chance to talk to people they don’t know. Dinner will be provided by local caterers and restaurants to reflect a variety of ethnic foods.  This is the first of several events.

This is a FREE event, but registration is required.  Click here to learn more and to reserve your seat at the table.
