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.

Tramping the Dune Shacks with the Dune Tramp

Thursday, June 27 at 7:00 pm 

Do you enjoy the lure of the outer Cape dunes with their quaint old shacks? Join the Dune Tramp, an engaging writer and photographer, as he narrates a virtual tour with over 100 slides. The Dune Tamp has captured the beauty and mystery of the shacks and takes you on a journey across the landscape of Truro and Provincetown, over a three and a three quarter mile stretch, to visit the nineteen existing dune shacks remaining in the Cape Cod National Seashore. The photographs will take you inside these rustic dwellings for a rare glimpse of shack living. See vintage images of some shacks that date back to the 1940s, graciously shared by the National Seashore. Each shack is discussed along with a brief history and an anecdote or two. You’ll appreciate the insider’s view into these enigmatic and iconic structures of the Cape Cod landscape.
