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.

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.

Above & Beyond: JFK and the U-2 Pilots During the Cuban Missile Crisis
7:00 PM

New York Times bestselling author Michael J. Tougias will give an engaging presentation on his new book Above & Beyond which chronicles the thirteen harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis and then outlines the steps President Kennedy made to reach a decision on a course of action.

Special emphasis is given to the heroes of the crisis: the U-2 pilots who flew unarmed over Cuba to secure the photographic proof that the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles on the island., These pilots helped President Kennedy achieve a difficult objective: have the nuclear missiles removed from Cuba without triggering Armageddon. 

This unique presentation entertains with a dramtic chronicling of the Cuban Missile Crisis (with slides) while providing useful analysis of JFK's process of tackling major decisions in practical ways that others can learn from and adopt. 

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