WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: The library will hold their annual holiday book sale, one of the biggest of the year, starting on Saturday, December 6, at 10:00 a.m. On that day, two rooms in the lower level of the library will be filled with books for sale. This is due to the greater than ever level of donations to the library, specifically for the sale. There are many large and beautiful books on photography and art, as well as recently published and copiously illustrated cookbooks included in the new selection. There are also many recently published fiction books. As always, there are discards from the library collection, moved along to make room for newer books on the library’s own shelves. The doors to the Book Sale will be open until 5:00 p.m.  After the first big day, the sale will continue through the holiday season in a smaller state, during regular library hours, which include all late afternoons except for Sunday when the library is closed. For a complete listing of the library hours and events, go to the website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org. Raffle: The library is again pleased to be offering a raffle of local pottery. Five Woods Hole potters: Anne Halpin, Ann Newbury, Hollis Engley, Ron Geering, and Tessa Morgan have all donated pieces of their distinctive work. Raffle tickets will be sold from now through December 10, when the winners will be drawn at the library’s holiday party. Tickets may be purchased at the library, and can be designated to whichever piece the buyer prefers. All the pieces are typical of their makers, and all are on view at the library. All the pottery is on view when the library is open, which includes every late afternoon except Sunday. For specific hours, see the library’s website www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org. Radio Workshop for Teens: The library is pleased to offer an exciting new program for local teenagers interested in audio and radio production.  The library has teamed-up with Woods Hole-based website Transom.org to offer a week-long audio storytelling workshop for twelve Upper Cape high school students on February 16-20, 2015. Participating students will expand their writing, interviewing and organizational skills, as they become familiar with the recording and editing equipment and software used in radio production. The week-long workshop, which runs 9-5 each day, will end with a public presentation of these short audio pieces at the library.  Some may ultimately be aired on local public radio station WCAI. Students will be selected from Falmouth, Mashpee, and Bourne high schools. Other than a $50 equipment fee per student, the workshop will be offered at no cost, thanks to a generous grant from the Brabson Library and Educational Foundation.  Participants must have a laptop computer and daily transportation to and from library for the full five days of the workshop. Jay Allison – who founded WCAI and later, Atlantic Public Media – launched Transom.org in 2001. Transom is a Peabody Award winning, world-renowned website featuring tools and inspiration for telling stories for radio, the web, and elsewhere. While this will be the first workshop for teenagers offered by the non-profit, Rob Rosenthal, the lead instructor of the Transom Workshops, has extensive background working with high school students while living in Maine, and is excited to reconnect with this age group. Online applications will open November 12, 2014 at Transom.org, and will close on December 12.  Final student selection will be made within the following two weeks.  For questions or more information, please call the library at (508) 548-8961.
