Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: April 29

Presents the video “Creatures of Light” on Friday, April 29, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Deep in the ocean, animals that flash, sparkle, and glow use light to survive in the dark. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: May 6

Presents the video “Leave it to Beavers” on Friday, May 6, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. The beaver, more than any other animal, is responsible for creating fertile landscapes across North America, but it hasn’t gotten much recognition for that accomplishment until now. A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists have come to regard beavers as overlooked tools in reversing the effects of global warming and world-wide water shortages. Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

SEA EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (SEA) LECTURE: May 1

On Sunday, May 1, at 1:00 p.m., at SEA’s James L. Madden Center Lecture Hall, 171 Woods Hole Road in Falmouth, there will be a free lecture titled “Changing SEAscapes: 25 Years at SEA” by Mary Malloy, professor of Maritime Studies at SEA and director of the Global Ocean program that is open to the public. Mary Malloy has taught most of her career at SEA Semester, a position that she (like most faculty), thought would be a quick step on the road to a “real” job. As she prepares to depart after 25 years, Mary will talk about the compelling nature of SEA programs, what happened to her as the time flew by, and how both changed and grew with the realization that humans have wrought extreme environmental changes on the world, and SEA is in a unique position to address them. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please call (508) 540-3954.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: Week of April 25

On Saturday, April 30, at 3:00 p.m., the library will offer a program about May Baskets for young children, their caregivers, and friends of all ages. After a short presentation about May Baskets, their history and tradition, the children will all be led out to pick flowers, then back to the library to fill their May Baskets to give away. The library sees this as an official welcome to springtime! Materials will be provided. The event is free and open to the public. A safari in South Africa with side trips to Victoria Falls and Cape Town will be featured in a travelogue on Wednesday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m., in the downstairs Community Room of the library. Vicky Cullen will describe her January 2016 trip to southern Africa. Animal pictures, from big cats to giraffes will be shown—including a ride aboard an elephant—along with human encounters, enticing scenery, and a look at one of the world’s southernmost big cities. The safari part of the trip took place in Kruger National Park and Kapama Game Reserve, where animals travel alone or in small groups. Falmouth is rich in poets, and the library is proud to be offering an evening with two of the most illustrious reading from their new work. They are Jarita Davis and Alice Kociemba, both of West Falmouth. Both are well-published and active authors. Jarita will read selections from her new book “Return Flights,” which was just published in April by Tagus Press. This volume is a collection of her poems about the Cape Verde Islands and their cultural heritage, which Jarita shares. Alice Kociemba, who is founder of West Falmouth Library’s Calliope Poetry Group, and editor of Common Threads, the Massachusetts Poetry organization’s annual poetry festival and discussion group, will read her new book “Bourne Bridge” which features this place, this area of Cape Cod where she lives. The readings will be held at the library on Monday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m., in the lower level meeting room, which is handicapped accessible. The event is free and open to the public. Plants and gardeners wanted: The library seeks volunteers in preparation for its annual plant sale. The needs are for two services: growers and diggers. The sale will be held Saturday, May 14, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Before that date, the library asks that people grow annuals and vegetables specifically for the sale. If people could just grow a few extra six-packs, as they plant seeds for their own use, the plants would be most welcome additions to the sale. Likewise, people are asked to divide their perennials and save a division for the library. All of these plants could be delivered to the library earlier in the week of May 9. The library is also looking for a corps of diggers to go out together to dig and divide plants at other donors’ gardens. This is always a congenial time for the group, but new members with strong backs and plant knowledge are invited to join by calling the library at (508) 548-8961.
