The Foundation

The Foundation 
Welcome to the Stoughton Public Library’s science fiction & fantasy book group. We’ve named this group "The Foundation" in honor of science fiction grand master Isaac Asimov and his famous Foundation Trilogy. Copies of the selected books are available on the second floor of the library (contact the library and we'll help you get a copy). We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm.
