January 14 @ 8:00 am - February 23 @ 5:00 pm

The library will show a funny family movie during February vacation, on Tuesday, February 21 at 3 p.m. The new animated feature is based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber. (Unfortunately, the library’s lease does not allow the mention of the title in any PR, so the public will have to guess the name of this film and its book. One could substitute “name, name, reptile”, but that would be nowhere near as much fun as the rhyming title.) This live-action animated film will last one hour and 46 minutes. To give a synopsis of the plot: When the Primm family moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers a singing crocodile who loves baths, caviar, and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when the crocodile’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps the Primm’s must band together with the animal’s charismatic owner to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there’s nothing wrong with a big singing reptile with an even bigger personality. For more information, including the real title, either call the library at (508) 548-8961 or email at The library will present a fun writing workshop for kids with local author Ted Murphy to be held during February Vacation Week. The workshop will be held on Thursday, February 23, from 2-4 p.m., and is free. Kids must register in advance by calling the library at (508) 548-8961 or emailing workshop is called “The Power of Suspense in a Story” and it’s for kids in grades 4 and up (or age 9 1/2 and up). T.M. Murphy will talk about what he’s learned that has helped him write suspense. He will read a suspense scene from his book “The Secrets of Code Z” and talk about how he wrote it. Each participant will receive the beginning of a suspenseful scene that Mr. Murphy wrote. It will then be their mission to finish it and read it to the group. Eric Edwards, who grew up in Woods Hole and still lives here, will speak at the library on Monday, February 27 at 7 p.m. He will be sharing and celebrating the publication of his most recent book, a collection of prose poems titled Black Apple. People who have read Eric’s poetry in any of his books, or journals such as Spritsail, where he served as poetry editor under Mary Lou Smith for several years, could be excused from knowing that he was writing this other form (prose poems) all along. He occasionally teaches haiku to adults and high schoolers, and how to read poetry for adults. Even before this new book is officially launched by One Bird Books, Eric would like to read from his collection to local people interested in prose poetry, in Woods Hole. The book, “Black Apple, Collected Prose Poems, 1975-2022” published last November, is now available to order. For more information, call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit the library’s website
