WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: The library is jumping into summer by opening their book sale on the front lawn. Every day the library is open, board members will be manning the book sale out under a small festive tent, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. As in all the library book sales, prices are extremely low. Unlike during the pandemic, the indoor book sale is also open. It has a much larger, fuller collection, and is open during all library hours, Monday through Saturdays. For those who desperately need a book when the library is closed, there are recently improved, now enclosed, bookshelves at the lower door, filled with yet more books for sale. The honor system is in effect, with a request for money to be put into the book drop. Another on-going library event celebrating kids’ books will take place at the ballpark on Bell Tower Lane over the course of the summer. The Lassalle Dance Lecture and Film Series at the library continues in August with three film screenings in August. Two will be accompanied by people directly involved with the creation of the films. All are free and open to the public. All events will start at 7:30 p.m., and take place in the library’s courtyard, unless weather indicates otherwise. If the event is moved inside, only the first 25 people will be able to attend. For this reason, we ask all attendees to register in advance by calling (508) 548-8961 or emailing Masks will be required if the program moves indoors. The first August screening was a presentation of the award-winning film Petit Rat, followed by an in-person discussion with the filmmaker, Vera Wegman and her sister, both featured in the documentary.  On August 24 Unconquered, the most recent dance film by the founder and director of Diversity of Dance Earl Mosley, will be shown. On August 17, a three-part program will be offered. It will include a screening of the dynamic film The Barre Project, which was created virtually during the pandemic by internationally renowned ballet choreographer William Forsythe. Included in the Forsythe interview is Chyrstyn Fentroy, soloist at the Boston Ballet. The library is particularly pleased that she will join us for the evening and be available for a question-and-answer session following the film. For more information, visit the library’s website
