Never Too Late Group at the Central Library

Thursdays at 2:00 p.m. in Rabb Lecture Hall

Never Too Late

The Never Too Late Group is one of the country’s oldest, continuously running groups for seniors. For over 60 years,
it has provided a setting for seniors to gather together and enjoy with their friends a wide variety of unique programs that are entertaining and culturally enriching. Programs are always held year round in the Rabb Lecture Hall on Thursdays at 2:00 pm. A typical month consists of classic and contemporary films, live musical performances, and author or lecture talks about various topics, especially on Boston or Massachusetts history.

Effective in July, programs will be held in the Commonwealth Salon, which is on the first floor of the Central Library in Copley Square across from the Leventhal Map Center.
