WOODS HOLE PUBLIC LIBRARY: The recently formed “Forgotten Gems Book Group” will continue to meet at 4:00 p.m., on the first Wednesday of each month. This book group is open to all and will focus on titles that are no longer prominent, but still worthy of reading, having stood the test of time. Every year, for more than 10 years, the library has been lucky enough to be able to offer a raffle of pieces of pottery from their favorite local potters. All the pieces have been graciously donated by these potters: Ann Newbury, Tessa Morgan, Anne Halpin, and Hollis Engley. For this raffle, Tessa has brought a large serving platter with whales swimming around a sea-green center; Ann Newbury has contributed a large, deep-baking and serving bowl in a beautiful rich blue with a dark green interior, and Anne Halpin has donated a lovely celadon green porcelain covered baking dish with bas relief miniature starfish and shell on top. Hollis’s piece will be a surprise.  Raffle tickets are $2 each or three for $5. All the pottery is on view when the library is open. The final day to buy tickets is Wednesday, December 9, when the drawing will be held. The library is gearing up for its big December book sale, which opens December 5, at 10:00 a.m. and closes at 5:00 p.m., that day and then runs throughout the month. On that day, and in the weeks following, the entire large meeting room will be full of books for sale, covering the bookshelves on the walls, as well as covering tables all through the room. For more information, please call the library at (508) 548-8961 or visit www.woodsholepubliclibrary.org.


The center, located at 15 School Street, Woods Hole, is open Tuesday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Check out the new exhibit "Life Around a Hydrothermal Vent," which depicts life at a Galapagos hydrothermal vent. For more information, call (508) 289-2663. WHOI merchandise is available year-round by visiting our online store at http://shop.whoi.edu/.
