Library Updates

On February 4, 2020 the Dennis Public Library will reopen to serve patrons. Repairs to areas damaged by water on January 20, 2020 have been completed. The Children’s Room and the Benjamin and Ruth Muse Meeting Room sustained damage in an earlier event on November 8, 2019, and will remain closed until carpet is delivered later this month.

The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide Program that is normally offered at this time of year in the Meeting Room has been relocated to the Dennis Union Church at 713 Main Street (Route 6A), Dennis, MA, through the month of February. Please call Susan Reilly at the Dennis Senior Center to arrange an appointment for tax preparation assistance: 508-385-5067. Voting on March 3, 2020, for Precinct #3 will still take place at Dennis Public Library.

The Dennis Public Library wishes to thank all of those who reached out with good wishes and offers of assistance. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Do's and Don'ts for Living Near a Wetland

Thursday, August 19 at 7:00 pm

Wetlands are special areas of land that benefit both people and wildlife. Conservation Agent Paul Wightman will speak to our audience and take the mystery out of dealing with and living near a wetland. He will provide an overview of the Dennis Wetland By-Law and point out those activities near wetlands that require Conservation Commission approval. Issues addressed will include permit application requirements, tree removal, and landscaping within wetland buffer areas. As a community, the more we know the better position we’ll be in to preserve and protect our valuable wetlands.
