WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Week of September 18

The library has again been hosting monarch butterflies as it has for the last ten years. They have been raising them from egg, through the rest of the stages of metamorphosis: caterpillar, chrysalis, and adult. So far since mid-August, they have raised and released 110 butterflies. This is almost entirely due to local Woods Hole resident entomologist Becky Lash. Since mid- August Becky has been maintaining a butterfly enclosure at the library. This year, the library will host a series of monarch butterfly events, culminating in “Monarch Day,” in which Becky will give a presentation to an audience of all ages, and release one of the last butterflies (hopefully) to emerge from its chrysalis. On Saturday, September 23, the library will offer an afternoon of making costumes based on the stages of monarch metamorphosis. Materials and simple plans will be available. Children and their care-givers are invited to come take part in constructing their costumes starting at 2:00 p.m. On the following Saturday, September 30, again at 2:00 p.m., an afternoon craft workshop for children of all ages will be offered. All the crafts will be monarch related, with a stress on metamorphosis. Some will be very simple and suitable for young children; others will be more complicated. Saturday, October 7, at 2:00 p.m., will feature Becky herself appearing and talking about the monarchs. As always, she will present the story of the monarchs and their life cycle in an understandable, yet gripping manner, which will appeal to all ages. After the talk, the group will move outside to release a monarch and walk around in costume, viewing local habitat and celebrating this iconic migratory insect. For more information about this event, which is free and open to the public, and aimed at children, (although adults are certainly welcome) call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit  www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org. The librarians at the library have created a delicious new program, a “Cookbook Club.” Since last winter, a group of about a dozen people have chosen recipes from one author’s book, cooked them, and sat down to eat the results together. The library is planning the third meeting of this popular activity. The number of participants will be limited to 12, and all must pre-register so that there will no duplication of recipes. The dinner celebrating late summer/early autumn bounty has been scheduled for October 7, at 6:00 p.m.  If there is an over-abundance of people wishing to take part, a second evening may be chosen. Books by author Deborah Madison are available at the library and will be available for pick-up when people come in to register. For more questions, or to register, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or email whpl_mail@clamsnet.org. People should not delay, since this is a very popular event.
