[ONLINE] Dementia Friends: An Informational Presentation with Mary Holmes
Oct 23

Zoom

Saturday, October 23 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Edgartown Free Public Library

Did you know that there are over 130,000 people living with dementia in Massachusetts? Many of them live lonely and isolated lives because of their condition. Dementia Friends is a social action movement developed by the Alzheimer’s Society in the United Kingdom, and Massachusetts is one of the first U.S. states to launch the Dementia Friends program. It aims to give people an understanding of dementia and the small things we can all do for people living with this condition in our communities. You can make a difference, as a private citizen and/or a business owner. Trained Dementia Friends Champion Mary Holmes, Supervisor of the Supportive Day Program in Vineyard Haven, will deliver a one-hour informational session. The Zoom link for this program will open half an hour before the program's start time, so come in a little early, set up your devices, get comfortable, and turn your mic and video off until you are invited to turn them on again. This program will not be recorded. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/online-dementia-friends-an-informational-presentation-with-mary-holmes/

Virtual Author Talk with Jeffrey Archer
Oct 23
Mashpee Public Library
Route 151, Mashpee, MA 02649

Saturday, October 23 at 2:00 pm

Mashpee Public Library

Bestselling author Jeffrey Archer will discuss his latest book, Over My Dead Body, via Zoom. Jeffrey Archer is one of the world’s bestselling authors, with sales of over 275 million copies in 97 countries, and is the only author ever to have been a number one bestseller in fiction, short stories and non-fiction. Jeffrey has served five years in the House of Commons as a Member of Parliament, and twenty-nine years as a Member of the House of Lords. Over My Dead Body is an enthralling story of murder, revenge and betrayal. In London, the Metropolitan Police set up a new Unsolved Murders Unit―a cold case squad―to catch the criminals nobody else can. In Geneva, millionaire art collector Miles Faulkner―convicted of forgery and theft―was pronounced dead two months ago. So why is his unscrupulous lawyer still representing a dead client? On a luxury liner en route to New York, the battle for power within a wealthy dynasty is about to turn to murder. And at the heart of all three investigations are Detective Chief Inspector William Warwick, rising star of the department, and ex-undercover agent Ross Hogan, brought in from the cold. But can they catch the killers before it’s too late? Register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/3816317232451/WN_8dJqt_JXTICiX1cet4ZEKw Hosted by the Tewksbury Public Library in collaboration with the Mashpee Library, Haley Booksellers and other Massachusetts Public Libraries . Register Here [Adult]

[ONLINE] Movie in Focus: Film Discussion Group (The Witch)
Oct 25

Zoom

Monday, October 25 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Edgartown Free Public Library

Until the day comes when we can enjoy films together again on the library’s big screen, we’re hosting a monthly virtual film group. View our movie of the month (free on Kanopy or Hoopla) and we’ll meet to discuss it via Zoom. Bring your impressions and opinions. Virginia Munro will choose the films and facilitate the group. This month’s film, The Witch (UK, 2016), is part folktale, part fairytale, and completely frightening. A horror film that generates dread and foreboding rather than screams, The Witch is rich in detail and atmosphere. Set in 1630’s New England, the talents of director and screenwriter Robert Eggers and his cast keep the menace festering up to the terrifying climax. The film is available to screen for free on Kanopy with your library card. The Zoom link for this program will open half an hour before the program's start time, so come in a little early, set up your devices, get comfortable, and turn your mic and video off until you are invited to turn them on again. This program will not be recorded. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/online-movie-in-focus-film-discussion-group/

Oct 26
Edgartown Free Public Library
Zoom

Tuesday, October 26 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Edgartown Free Public Library

From the early days of silent cinema through the heyday of the Universal Studios classics of the 1930s and 40s, movie audiences have been thrilled by the suspense, creepiness, and good old-fashioned "jump scares" that horror films offer. Learn about the beginnings of horror cinema, the stories behind your favorite characters, and behind-the-scenes trivia about the making of these classic movies. Film historian Frank Mandosa will bring you all of this, plus clips and trailers, for a newfound appreciation of a genre that has withstood the test of time. This program has been generously funded by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library. The Zoom link for this program will open half an hour before the program's start time, so come in a little early, set up your devices, get comfortable, and turn your mic and video off until you are invited to turn them on again. This program will not be recorded. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/online-things-that-go-bump-in-the-night-the-history-and-impact-of-the-horror-movie/

Finalist for the International Booker Prize and the National Book Award A haunting Orwellian novel about the terrors of state surveillance, from the acclaimed author of The Housekeeper and the Professor. On an unnamed island, objects are disappearing: first hats, then ribbons, birds, roses. . . . Most of the inhabitants are oblivious to these changes, while those few able to recall the lost objects live in fear of the draconian Memory Police, who are committed to ensuring that what has disappeared remains forgotten. When a young writer discovers that her editor is in danger, she concocts a plan to hide him beneath her floorboards, and together they cling to her writing as the last way of preserving the past. Powerful and provocative, The Memory Police is a stunning novel about the trauma of loss.

Virtual : Brian Luce on the Psychology of Dog Training Methods
Oct 27
Vineyard Haven Public Library
Zoom platform

Wednesday, October 27 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Vineyard Haven Public Library

Local dog (and human) trainer Brian Luce will give a presentation on the psychology behind dog training methods.There are a host of different leashes, collars and harnesses on the market, yet there is not much information on how these are to be properly used. Brian will  teach us how to use these tools properly and efficiently. He will go into the psychology behind our perception of training tools and their methods and how one’s emotions can affect training.Brian Luce is an Island native. He began dog training over 5 years ago when he volunteered at a rescue facility here in Massachusetts. He realized quickly that loving dogs wasn’t enough to help them. From that point on he worked for various daycares, mentored under many different trainers and learned as much as he could about dogs and their behavior. After 3 months of intense schooling in Texas, Brian worked in Vermont with a training company. Brian realized that his skills and psychology were different, so he moved back to MV and started his own business. It was here on the Island where he really learned to develop his skills and his own methodology. Brian’s primary focus is on Dog Psychology versus  ‘obedience’ or ‘commands’. His ideology is founded on understanding how a dog’s brain works, rather than simply teaching a dog to ‘sit’ or ‘stay’.Please contact amcdonough@clamsnet.org or tthorpe@clamsnet.org for Zoom access.Contact: Anne McDonough : 5086964211116 : amcdonough@clamsnet.org [Adult]

How did the benevolent image of a wise woman transform into the malevolent figure of the witch we know today?Witches are one of the most traditional as well as mysterious entities we associate with Halloween. When you think of a witch, it's easy to conjure up an image of an old, ugly, hook-nosed woman, stirring up a steaming potion that is brewing away inside a cauldron. Of course her usual sidekick, the proverbial black cat, is probably not far awayHave you ever wondered, especially on Halloween, why witches are depicted as riding on brooms through the nighttime sky? (It's a story you may find difficult explaining to the kids!)You're never going to look at sweeping the same way again...Offered in conjunction with the Chilmark Public Library.

Too Many Marys: Solving Identity & Same Name Conundrums
Nov 3
Mashpee Public Library
Route 151, Mashpee, MA 02649

Wednesday, November 3 at 6:00 pm

Mashpee Public Library

One of the most common issues we face when doing family research is determining whether a particular John Smith is "our" John Smith. We often "pick one" before we have determined that we have no competing candidates. The naming practices of certain cultures (e.g. Scandinavian and Irish), inherited names appearing in multiple generations and women who marry and are "lost" are all examples of the problems we face every day. There is no silver bullet for parsing out your ancestor from all the others. Using examples, we will explore three different types of same-name issues of increasing complexity and develop research strategies for each.Presenter Jill Morelli, CG, loves to share her passion for genealogy with others. She is a writer, lecturer and researcher specializing in the US Midwest, Scandinavia and northern Germany. She lectures nationally on topics inspired by her own research and methodology. Jill has been successfully published in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Swedish American Genealogist, Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly and many others. In 2017, she founded the online Certification Discussion Group, demystifying the process of submission of a portfolio to the Board for Certification of Genealogists and in 2021, she founded with two others the Applied Genealogy Institute, a virtual practicum-based institute for advanced learners. Jill is past president of the Seattle Genealogical Society, and belongs to many local genealogical societies.This free virtual event is presented via Zoom by the Boston Public Library.

Photo Engagement Project – Online The West Tisbury Library presents online gatherings of the Photo Engagement Project (PEP). This event meets on the first Thursday of each month at 5:30pm. The PEP meets on Zoom while the library building remains closed. Please contact the West Tisbury Library to join by emailing wt_mail@clamsnet.org. Free and open to the public. About the PEP: This monthly gathering is open to people of all different ages, backgrounds, and experiences. Participants do not need to be photographers or live on-island. All are welcome, including children through to seniors, individuals who simply have an appreciation for photography, individuals who would like to learn or are just starting out, students, and amateurs and professionals. The goal is to increase engagement in and enthusiasm for photography, at the level each individual chooses, whilst simultaneously encouraging each individual to do the same for others. In this way, the PEP hopes to promote an ongoing cycle of shared creative activity around the enjoyment of photography, and enhance wellbeing. The PEP does not have a jurying process, and does not critique participants’ work. It is designed to increase accessibility and engagement; help develop confidence, ideas, and connections; and offer opportunities for people to receive, and give, help in a safe and supportive environment. Participants are not required to attend every meeting. At meetings, each participant will be asked to contribute something small, as we all have something to give, as well as learn. Some ideas may include: bringing a few of your own photos, images of a photographer’s work that inspires you, a quote or excerpt from a book/magazine, tips, news of artist opportunities/workshops, or potential project proposals such as a photo walk, printing images, or outreaching to an island organization.

That way if he can’t virtually appraise the primary item, he can appraise the back-up item,o We’ve seen that a Virtual Background can distort how an item looks so we will ask that Virtual Backgrounds be turned off when showing their items.

In the spirit of Ken Burns' breakout PBS documentary series on American country music, acclaimed guitarist and music historian Joey Leone presents “The History of Blues in America” a one hour program covering the history, influence and social impact of American blues music through songs, stories and historical facts. Joey highlights the influence of blues on virtually all styles of contemporary music over the past 7 decades playing a variety of songs on multiple guitars from his personal collection. In addition to the live music segments, he touches on recurring themes of how the blues transcended racial boundaries, brought people together in times of celebration and times of healing, and how the blues followed the migration from the rural south to the urban north. Joey also ties in his upbringing in Brooklyn NY, and how important the Public Library System was for his discovery, passion, and education about music and music history. A lifelong career musician, he has toured and recorded as a guitar player for many high profile artists including Etta James, The Coasters, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Chaka Khan, and many more [Programs and Events]

[ONLINE] Edward Hopper: Alienated Majesty, Presented by Janet Mandel
Nov 12
Edgartown Free Public Library
Zoom

Friday, November 12 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Edgartown Free Public Library

A roadside gas pump, a nondescript diner, a bleak hotel room—Edward Hopper had a remarkable ability to invest the most ordinary scene with intense mystery and emotional depth, creating enigmatic narratives not easily unraveled. His vision lingered on uncanny depictions of New England towns, New York City architecture, and stark yet intimate interpretations of everyday life. This talk will reveal why so many claim Hopper to be the supreme American realist of the 20th Century. Janet Mandel taught in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and World Languages and Cultures. In October of 2003, she was named runner-up for the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH) Teacher of the Year award and was formally recognized by the New Jersey State Legislature and Governor Codey for this achievement. In May of 2004, she was the recipient of the “Innovations in Special Education Award” from the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) and the Association of Schools and Agencies for the Handicapped (ASAH). Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history topics at libraries, museums, senior centers, community centers, and other venues. This program has been generously funded by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library. The Zoom link for this program will open half an hour before the program's start time, so come in a little early, set up your devices, get comfortable, and turn your mic and video off until you are invited to turn them on again. This program will not be recorded. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/online-edward-hopper-alienated-majesty/
