Explore the arts today in your own backyard

Literature and the arts are alive and well in Norwell. Stop by our library and pick up a current bestseller or a hard-to-find classic. Take in a show in our Art Gallery, or attend a concert in our charming performance hall. The James is a gathering place for the community to explore the arts close to home. There is always something happening in this charming Victorian building in Norwell Center. The James Library is free and open to the public.
