NAMI Visit and Information Share - CANCELLED

CANCELLED -
Saturday, May 21st at 12:30

NAMI is the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI works to educate, support, and advocate to improve the lives of people with mental illness and their loved ones.

At this session, come and learn about the opportunities for education, support, and resources on Cape Cod. If you are managing a mental health issue, or you are a family member supporting and advocating for a loved one, or you simply want to know more about NAMI, we invite you to attend. 

Please call the library to register: 508-760-6219. 

Friends' Confidential Corner

Visitors to Dennis Public Library may notice something new in the building. 

The Friends of the Dennis Public Library are sponsoring a “Confidential Corner,” which provides materials on sensitive topics such as domestic abuse, suicide, substance use, and divorce. Patrons can borrow these materials without consulting with staff or checking materials out at the Circulation Desk. Of course, the Library always keeps patron information confidential, but sometimes people want to quietly and discreetly seek out resources during times of personal challenge.  

The Friends immediately responded to the Library’s request to sponsor this program. Both the Friends and the Library want to help community members in need and ask only that borrowers return items to the Confidential Corner bookcase when finished, so that they can help the next person. Together we can build a healthy and strong community.

All supplies are provided, and patrons go home with their own work of art.

Please call the library to register, as spaces are limited for this always popular event: 508-760-6219.

Portrait by Avery Philbrook

Dennis says goodbye...

It's been fun! 

The shining sun is a sign that Dennis has to go. After all, spring will be here on Sunday. He's really enjoyed his visit to the Town of Dennis and Dennis Public Library, where he met a lot of terrific patrons. 

Will we see Dennis again? Well, we'll have to see. But he says farewell for now, and happy spring, and he wishes you a summer filled with sunshine, cool breezes, and low humidity. He's so thoughtful, that Dennis!

Reminder- Massachusetts Must Read Author, Nicholas A. Basbanes

Wednesday, February 16th at 7:00 - register through Zoom

Don't miss this virtual author event brought to you by Dennis Public Library and other Massachusetts libraries. Register using link at bottom of post.

Author Nicholas A. Basbanes was recently recognized by the Massachusetts Center for the Book as one of Massachusetts's must-read authors of the year. Join him for a presentation on his critically acclaimed book, In Cross of Snow: A Life of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

About The Book: In Cross of Snow, the result of more than twelve years of research, including access to never-before-examined letters, diaries, journals, notes, Nicholas Basbanes reveals the life, the times, the work, and the soul of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow -- the man who shaped the literature of a new nation with his countless poems, sonnets, stories, essays, translations, and whose renown was so wide-reaching that his deep friendships included Charles Dickens, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Julia Ward Howe, and Oscar Wilde.

Basbanes writes of the shaping of Longfellow's character, his huge body of work that included translations of numerous foreign works, among them, the first rendering into a complete edition by an American of Dante's Divine Comedy. We see Longfellow's two marriages, both happy and contented, each cut short by tragedy. His first to Mary Storer Potter that ended in the aftermath of a miscarriage, leaving Longfellow devastated. His second marriage to the brilliant Boston socialite--Fanny Appleton, after a three-year pursuit by Longfellow, and his emergence as a literary force and a man of letters.

About The Author: Nicholas A. Basbanes, a Lowell native, is an award-winning investigative journalist and was literary editor of the Worcester Sunday Telegram. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Smithsonian. He is the author of eight books. Basbanes lives in North Grafton. Learn more about Basbanes HERE.
