highland Free Fun Fridays
Highland Street Foundation is once again sponsoring its Free Fun Fridays. This offer visitors no-cost admission to many of the most treasured cultural venues in Massachusetts. For children and families throughout Massachusetts during the summer months. Every Friday, from the end of June through the end of August, multiple sites are open for free.

Attention, Readers!!! We have NoveList!

novplus NoveList Plus! — if you’ve ever wondered what you should read next, you will love this. If your favorite author is on vacation, between books or (heaven forbid) has passed away, you can go to one of their books and select a “read-alike.” You can browse, or add in a theme, genre or even make up something like “romance and zombies.” Really. And it’s not just for fiction. There are many features and this database has been around for over 20 years and we were lucky to be able to get it again through the SAILS network.
novk8plus NoveList K-8 Plus! — this is the equally awesome version of NoveList Plus only with a concentration on children’s literature.
It’s really worth looking at, especially for all the young readers who can’t get enough to read!

Don’t Forget Our Online Magazine Databases
If you are looking up information in magazines, check out the Databases and Passes tab above. You can access many of these even if you don’t live in Fairhaven, and we also do have some that are for Fairhaven cardholders only (you need your library card number), like the very popular Consumer Reports Magazine. They are not cheap, so we want them to be used!!!
