Library Updates

On January 20, 2020 the Dennis Public Library experienced water damage to its Circulation Desk and Back Office areas due to a leaking sprinkler pipe.

The Library will remain closed on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 to allow for clean up and repair of the affected areas. Additional closure time may be necessary to complete work. Stay tuned for further updates.

During this time period, the remaining four Dennis village libraries are fully operational and open to serve patrons. For information on these libraries, locations, and hours, please see the Town of Dennis website for the Departmental listing for Libraries at https://www.town.dennis.ma.us/libraries.


American Sign Language Workshop

Tuesday, August 20 from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m.


Have you ever wanted to learn more about American Sign Language and the world of the deaf and hard of hearing? Local instructor John Smith will help educate our audience. He will take us through the history of ASL and the principles of its sentence structure. He will also conduct exercises using flash cards, team acting, and marker boards. Participants will receive a hand out on finger-spelling and view segments of the PBS special Through Deaf Eyes. The session will conclude with two games popular in the deaf community. Because of the length of the program, refreshments will be provided. Space is limited, so please call the library at 508-760-6219 to pre-register.
