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.

New local author Kathleen Brunelle

Saturday, October 30 at 2:00 pm

In a perfect ending to our celebration of Archaeology Month and the pirate ship Whydah, the author arrives to discuss her new work, Bellamy's Bride: The Search for Maria Hallett of Cape Cod. Legend has it that pirate "Black Sam" Bellamy was aboard the Whydah and hoping to return to his Cape Cod love Maria Hallett when the ship was lost in a storm off the coast of Wellfleet. Ms. Brunelle carefully picks up the threads of legend and lore and searches to find the historical truth behind the stories of Maria Hallett. Did Maria really exist? She traces the real people and considers the possibilities. Books will be available for sale and signing.
