Other Events and Notes of Interest


Presents part two of the video “Decoding the Weather Machine” on Friday, June 1, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something’s up with the weather, and many scientists agree. It’s the result of the weather machine itself—our climate—changing, becoming hotter and more erratic. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.


Will host a public lecture, “Maintaining a Tall Ship: An In-Depth Look at the SSV Corwith Cramer’s Major Maintenance Project,” on Tuesday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. Capt. Jen Haddock, SEA marine operations coordinator, will deliver the lecture, which will be held at the James L. Madden Center Lecture Hall, Sea Education Association, 171 Woods Hole Road. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.


On Wednesday, June 6, WHOI's Sustainability Committee is sponsoring two special programs at Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole. From 5 - 6:30 p.m., all WHOI employees, students, postdocs, and volunteers are invited to a presentation by Falmouth's Water Superintendent, Stephen Rafferty, on our public drinking water supply. An overview including our water sources, "state-of-the-art" filtration plant, and distribution system will be described. A second presentation on the same topic will be offered and open to the general public later that evening from 7 - 8:30 p.m. A lottery for a “Water Plant” tour will be held at the end of each presentation with each attendee given one chance to win one of 12 places on the tours. Both tours will take place on Wednesday, June 13 at 5:30 p.m., and at 7 p.m.


The library will be holding their huge annual late-Spring “Book Sale” on Saturday, June 2, from 10 a.m. -5 p.m. The Book Sale volunteers have been working for weeks to sort out all the new gifts and prepare for the sale. There are many beautiful “coffee table books” which have been recently donated, as well as recent fiction, and a wide-ranging collection of non-fiction, something to please everyone. Also pleasing are the prices: $2 for hard-back and $1 for paper, with special prices. The sale will continue during usual open library hours on the days following the sale. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961, or visit the library’s website
