Book Talk~ All Cooped Up

Saturday, January 20th at 11:00am


Stop by the library for a special book talk about the new book, "All Cooped Up: A Savvy Senior Society."

"All Cooped Up" by Fiona Frizzle, is a book about seniors - impersonating chickens - impersonating pincushions. It is really about seniors having FUN with the life they are now living. The story touches on many of the issues and conditions seniors face in their daily lives: the loss of their Frequent Feather Flying License because of age, the rising rates of the Click Clack Cable Company, living on a limited income. And the losses: loss of vision, loss of hearing, loss of mobility, and especially loss of dear friends, and neighbors. It’s all here in the Coop.

This story intends to help seniors, their families and friends identify with what it’s like to be a senior today. After all, we are still young chicks!

Join Sharon Anderson, AKA Fiona Frizzle, for a book talk about "All Cooped Up." Sharon is the leader of the Cape Cod Writer’s Studio that meets weekly at Dennis Public Library. She is excited to share her story with the public at this event.

Getting Started with Bullet Journals

Come learn the basics and start your own Bullet Journal at this program run by Nicole, our reference librarian.

A Bullet Journal is a completely customizable organizational system created by Ryder Carroll. The journal can be anything you want, including your planner, to do list, and journal, all in one. Get creative adding lots of doodles, colors, and embellishments, or keep it simple with a minimalist style. The options are endless and you are sure to find something that will help you stay organized and reach your goals and new year’s resolutions. 

All you need to get started is a notebook and a pen. Participants are encouraged to bring their own notebook (any kind will do) to this free program. Limited supplies will be available.
