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.

The Elusive Fisher Cat

Saturday, July 13 at 11:00 am 

Join Jodie Limon Montoya, Education Coordinator from the Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, as she introduces our audience to the Fisher Cat, Cape Cod's newest weasel. (No live animal will appear.)

The fisher (Martes pennanti) is the second largest member of the weasel family found in Massachusetts; only the river otter is larger. Although many people call them "fisher cats," the name is inappropriate. They are neither members of the feline family, nor do they catch fish. They are, however, fascinating predators! We'll watch video of an orphaned young fisher as it learns through trial and error, and we'll learn about the habits and signs of animals like otters and minks, the fisher's Cape Cod relatives.
