Newton Public Library staff members will host a book chat, live via Zoom, at 7 p.m. April 2.

Librarians Sharon Cepeda, Sam Jack, Dan Eells and Stefanie Knopp will talk about what they're reading, and patrons are invited to do the same: sharing recommendations, talking about favorite books and reconnecting with Newton's community of readers.

Visit and follow the prompts to install the Zoom software on your computer, smartphone or tablet device. Use the same link to log into the meeting room on Thursday.
