March Topic: Human-made Disasters

March Meeting Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2024 from 7:00 to 8:45 PM – Milano Center (201 W Foster St) – In-person Meeting

Please register online for the March meeting!

The topic for March is Human-made Disasters.  Choose a disaster that was caused by the influence of the human touch and find a nonfiction book related to the event. Human-made disaster causes could be as simple as human error, negligence, failure of technology or even intentional tampering; most of the time such disasters are preventable. Arson, oil spills, nuclear and radiation leaks, pollution, deforestation, transportation accidents; the list is long and there are lots of possible examples to explore. If you need guidance in finding a book, check out this selection of titles which are just a sampling of what is available through the NOBLE library system.

Everyone is welcome, whether you read a book and want to share or just want to listen and learn!

During the library’s renovation project, the Milano Center has generously offered us a room for our meeting.  Please check in at the front desk when you arrive; doors will close and be locked by 7:30 PM.

Please be sure to register online for the March meeting using the Library Event Calendar so the library can accommodate all those planning to attend.

If you have questions, please contact Erin at or call the library at 781-665-2313.
