Starry, Starry Night
Our nights are especially clear and well suited to turning our eyes upward. Check out the library's telescope for a week of nighttime stargazing and exploring the moon. Look for the Space Station, the James Webb telescope or a meteor shower - the possibilities are as infinite as the heavens! Call or email to reserve it or drop by to check it out.
Each winter season, the Friends of the Samuel H. Wentworth Library hosts "Books Sandwiched In" - a series of presenter-led book reviews and discussions. The 2022 season concluded on April 22. If you were unable to attend in "real time" you can still enjoy recordings of each event by clicking the links listed below. Copies of each title are available at the library for check out.
