WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Week of March 11

Gardening classes for beginners will be held at the library on March 13 & 27, at 7:30 p.m. A stunning new documentary produced by National Geographic will be shown at the library on Monday, March 18, at 7 p.m., and again on Wednesday, March 20, at 3 p.m. The film features the rock-climber Alex Honnold as he attempts a life-long dream of climbing Yosemite’s 3,200’ rock face El Capitan in a free solo, that is, with no safety lines, no hardware, and all alone. The film has been called “a heart-stopping account of an ostensibly impossible endeavor.” As with many of the films shown at the library, the terms of the lease require the library to not name the title of the film, so you will just have to guess. This should not be difficult with this one-of-a-kind knock-out of a film, but people may call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit the website at www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org to find the exact title. These events are free and open to the public.
