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.

Join local author Hugh Blair-Smith as he discusses his book "Left Brains for the Right Stuff" about the Space Race. What made the Space Race possible? What made it necessary? How close a race was it? And what did it achieve? The answers involve the history of three technologies- rockets, navigation, and computers- and how they were woven together to make Apollo and the Space Shuttle significant contributions to winning the Cold War.


Author Hugh Blair-Smith, a part-time Cape Codder since 1946 and full-time since 2015, was a staff engineer at MIT's Instrumentation (later Draper) Laboratory from 1959 through 1981. He and many colleagues created one answer to the long-sought quest for "a moral equivalent to war."
