Wampanoags Yesterday, Today, and on Thanksgiving

Saturday, November 15 at 12:00 pm 

Come explore the culture that greeted some of the first European settlers in America. A Native museum educator from the Wampanoag Indigenous program at Plimouth Plantation (Plymouth, MA) will discuss the life and culture of the Wampanoag People, who continue to make their homes on Cape Cod today.

Hear the Native perspective on Thanksgiving. For the Wampanoag, it was Keepunumuk, the time of the harvest, while the English calendar said it was the autumn of 1621. In a small English town on the edge of the sea, more than 90 Wampanoag men shared food with 52 colonists. Over the centuries, the story of this gathering has been lost, recovered, told and retold. More than 200 hundred years later, this three-day celebration would come to be known as the First Thanksgiving. Images and artifacts will help reveal the special event that took place during those days.   

Veterans Day - CLOSED

The library will be closed on Tuesday, November 11th in honor of Veterans Day.

The library will re-open on Wednesday for regular hours.


November Artist - Joan Shostak


Throughout the month of November, enjoy a show by artist and Yarmouth Port resident Joan Shostak, who was named one of Cape Cod Life’s 400 people who brighten our lives in 2005.

A retired kindergarten teacher turned artist, Ms. Shostak teaches watercolor art in both Florida and on the Cape. Living on beautiful Cape Cod since 1983, the artist draws inspiration from the landscape and brings happiness to her patrons by creating commissioned portraits of their beloved homes. She has been chosen to be in two calendars, one national and one sponsored by Winkir Printing, South Yarmouth, MA. 

Ms. Shostak appreciates her fellow professional and gallery artists, having attended many local classes and workshops.  She is a juried artist member of the Cape Cod Art Association and a Board member of the Yarmouth Art Guild. 
The artist’s work is on display in the Meeting Room during most open library hours.
