June Art Exhibit: the photography of Beth Hoffer

Having lived in New England all but the first three years of her life, Beth is inspired by the natural and architectural beauty of the region.  Her photographs represent a wide range of the area, including the Maine Coast, Cape Cod, the White Mountains, and Boston and its suburbs.  The photographs bring to mind favorite places and pleasant memories.  While viewing the world through the camera lens, Beth has come to appreciate that everything changes, be it by the season, day or minute.  Her work hangs in both private and public collections.  Before turning to photography full time, Beth was a career librarian putting her MLS to work in academic and public libraries.

The photographs are available in a variety of formats and sizes.  For an overview, please visit www.LyricPhotos.Net.

Read to a Dog!
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

For kids in kindergarten through fourth grade.

Why read to a dog? Because a dog is friendly and fuzzy and loves the attention of being read to!  Youngsters can gain confidence in their reading aloud skills in the company of Maggie, our fabulous reading buddy, and her trainer, Katie!  The program is in the Storytelling Room.  Since young readers just working toward gaining confidence don't need an audience, even a loving one, we ask that parents and siblings wait outside.  (You can still peek through the window in the door!) 

Our dogs are registered Therapy Dogs with BONES International.

Sign up at the Youth Services Desk for a fifteen minute time slot.

Mystery Book Discussion Group
2:30 PM

Do you enjoy reading and discussing mystery novels? You'll find good company among our friendly readers who meet monthly in the library's Conference Room. This month's selection is The Reeve's Tale by Margaret Frazer:

It's June 1440, and Sister Frevisse from St. Frideswide nunnery travels to Prior Byfield, a village and land holdings held jointly by Lord Lovell and the  nunnery, to take the  place of the  nunnery's steward, Master Naylor, whose free-born status is questioned. While there, Sister Frevisse, again reluctantly, becomes involved in piecing together the  clues to solve two brutal murders. Property rights and lust are the  probable motives for the  crimes in this well-written mystery.  The  marvelous sense of place and attention to historical detail are always expected pleasures in this series-Ms. Frazer does not disappoint.

Pick up a copy of the book at the library's front desk today!

Return of the Sea Otter: the story of the animal that evaded extinction on the Pacific Coast
7:00 PM

These adorable, furry marine mammals--often seen floating on their backs holding hands--reveal the health of the coastal ecosystem along the Pacific Ocean. Once hunted for their prized fur during the 1700s and 1800s, these animals nearly went extinct. Only now, nearly a century after hunting ceased, are populations showing stable growth in some places. Sea otters are a keystone species in coastal areas, feeding on sea urchins, clams, crab and other crustaceans. When they are present, kelp beds are thick and healthy, providing homes for an array of sealife. When otters disappear, sea urchins take over, and the kelp disappears along with all of the creatures that live in the beds. Now, thanks to their protected status, sea otters are making a comeback in California, Washington, and Alaska. 

Todd McLeish is a science writer with three published books, all on natural history topics: NarwhalsBasking with Humpbacks, and Golden Wings and Hairy Toes: New England Wildlife. He is a popular public speaker on cruise ships and at museums and environmental centers and has published articles on wildlife topics in Earthwatch JournalBird Watcher's DigestWildBird, and Natural New England, among other publications.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy's Second Passenger Revealed
3:00 PM

In mid-morning of July 19, 1969 Sen. Ted Kennedy reported an accident he had had the previous night in which Mary Jo Kopechne had drowned. No one believed the story he wrote in his police report. What was he covering up? What really happened? Author Donald Nelson pored over thousands of pages of evidence, testimony, books, and written accounts, which led him to offer an explanation of what actually happened that night in his new book Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy’s Second Passenger Revealed. The book is an unintended result of a retirement project Mr. Nelson undertook after a career as a research physicist at Bell Laboratories. “I saw a documentary on A&E about the accident which outlined the questions around the event, and thought it would be a good intellectual exercise to examine it,” he said. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.
