Other Events and Notes of Interest

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: May 27

Presents the video “Operation Lighthouse Rescue” on Friday, May 27, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. On the picturesque bluffs at the very tip of the island of Martha’s Vineyard, disaster looms. The historic Gay Head Lighthouse is soon to become the next victim of the persistent erosion of the island’s cliffs. Built in 1856, the more than 400-ton structure soars 175 feet above the sea. But over the years, storms and the raging ocean have eroded the headland away. With fierce storms and hurricanes only intensifying as the global climate warms, this historic landmark is precipitously close to toppling into the ocean. Now, an epic rescue is underway as a team of engineers attempts to move the iconic red brick structure 134 feet inland to safety. As they race to save this national treasure, discover the geology they encounter, the archeology they discover, and technology they employ in this “Lighthouse Rescue.” Sponsored by the Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: June 3

Presents the video “Can Alzheimer's Be Stopped?” on Friday, June 3, at noon, in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water St., Woods Hole. Join investigators as they untangle the cause of Alzheimer’s and race to develop a cure. Sponsored by the Info Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM:

The next “Conversation” sponsored by the museum will be held on Tuesday, May 24, at 1:00 p.m., in the meeting room in the lower level of the Woods Hole Public Library, 581 Woods Hole Road, adjacent to the museum. The “Conversation” will be a historical look at shell-fishing in Falmouth. The speaker will be Matt Weeks, who comes to the subject with not only a lot of on-the-water knowledge, but also a deep curiosity and skill in searching historical documents. Matt was the fisheries technician for the Town of Falmouth for two years, and helped oversee the creation of oyster rafts in Little Pond, among other duties. Since then, he has moved on to become a self-employed shell-fisherman, with an oyster grant just outside Waquoit Bay. He works that grant, and also participates in wild harvest. For more information, call the museum at (508) 548-7270 or visit www.woodsholemuseum.org.

WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY:

The library will be holding a big book sale on Saturday, June 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. One of the most remarkable features of the library’s sale, in addition to the low prices, of course, is the careful arrangement of the books, all placed by subject for non-fiction, and by author. There has been a large collection of Civil War books donated for the sale, all in excellent condition. Large “coffee table” art books are also in the sale, as well as a handsome and enticing collection of gardening and cook books.  The committee has established a “Kids’ Corner” so all the children’s books are together, most on shelves low enough for the younger buyers to browse. Standard prices of kids’ books are even lower than the rest of the sale. As always, prices are very reasonable: $2 for most hardbacks, $1 for large paperbacks, 50 cents for small “trade” paperbacks.  The sale will continue in the days following the sale, during regular library hours. All proceeds help the library’s operating budget. The folk duo Hungrytown will present a concert at the library on Saturday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m. The husband and wife duo, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, with three album releases and a decade of world-wide touring, have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting. Lyricist Hall is credited with compositions “that sound as timeless as any traditional songs” (Northern Sky, UK) while producer/multi-instrumentalist Anderson is praised for his “remarkable affinity for instrumental embellishment (No Depression) and for crafting Hungrytown’s “gorgeous vocal harmonies” (Folk and Roots, UK). The $15 tickets for Hungrytown, which will appeal to all ages, may be purchased at Eight Cousins, the Bank of Woods Hole, and the library. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m., for the 7:30 p.m., concert. The library is located at 581 Woods Hole Road. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or check the website at www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.
