Welcome to North Andover Reads 2024!
What do Rachel Carson and Robert Frost have in common? They both use the analogy of a road to talk about the future and making choices. Rachel Carson wrote about “The Other Road” in Silent Spring, how choices made affect the environment, our Earth. Robert Frost wrote “The Road Not Taken”, how choices made today affect the future.
Please join us to read, to attend a program, to have a conversation, to make a difference. This year join others and the many Town of North Andover people on “The Other Road: Moving Towards a Greener Earth” to make North Andover, Massachusetts, USA, North America, the Earth a greener place.
North Andover Reads is a joint effort of the Stevens Memorial Library and the North Andover Public Schools. Each year, books, programs, exhibits and more are chosen around a particular theme and highlight our R.A.I.S.E. initiative
Dear NAPS Community,
I wanted to update you on the current situation regarding power outages in our town. Currently, 6 out of 8 schools plus the Central Office are without power, along with 3379 households town-wide. Additionally, there are trees and wires down across town. Restoration efforts have begun but have been slowed down by high winds, which have made it dangerous for crews to work with buckets in the air.
I have just gotten off the phone with National Grid and they have informed me that this storm has hit Eastern Massachusetts particularly hard, leaving over 170,000 customers without power. Crews are being called in from as far as New York to assist in restoring power to our area.
As a result, I wanted to inform you that there is a possibility that school may be canceled tomorrow. We will make a decision in the morning after assessing the situation, and if school is canceled you will be notified by 5:45 AM. I understand that this may cause an inconvenience for your family, but please know that the safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. Please stay safe.
