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.


Girls Who Code Field Trip

Recently the members of our "Girls Who Code" club were able to visit the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute for an fun and educational field trip.

They were given a history of some of the different kinds of ships and vessels including the Alvin, a human occupied submersible vehicle, REMUS, a programmable robotic vehicle, and the Sentry, designed for operations on the seafloor to over 19,500 ft. They also learned about the different moorings and buoys used around the world to help study the ocean. They toured the "back rooms" and were able to see first hand where the scientists worked. 

The girls had the opportunity to go to the docks to see some of the ships including the Atlantic that carries the Alvin and the Neil Armstrong. After the tour they walked to the Ocean Science Discovery Center to see some of the vessels. It was a great visit and everyone learned a great deal.
