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.

Visiting author Stephen Seitz

Friday, August 16 at 11:00 am


Come and meet Stephen Seitz. Stephen is an author, journalist, and editor based in Vermont, who is paying us a visit during his vacation to East Dennis. He has covered news in the upper Connecticut River Valley for more than a decade; his journalism and cinema commentary have appeared in a number of northern New England newspapers, including the New Hampshire Union Leader. (Steve was the first reporter who made it into the flood zone in the disastrous Alstead, NH, floods of 2005.) The better-known people Steve has interviewed include James Earl Jones, Jerry Lewis, an original cast member of every "Star Trek" series, former presidential candidates Howard Dean, Joe Lieberman and Wesley Clark, Sen. George McGovern, and authors Jodi Picoult and Dennis Lehane, among many others.


A lifelong Sherlock Holmes enthusiast, Steve wrote Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula, which is going strong after seven years. His just released crime mystery, entitled Secrets Can't Be Kept Forever, came out in June.
