The Truro Public Library presents “Working with Clay,” a special kids workshop series with Brian J. Taylor and Paul Wisotzky, in collaboration for the Castle Hill Center for the Arts. We have twelve spots for children 7 years and older. In the workshop we will make masks, whistles, and rattles. The first two sessions will be focused on making. For the third session we’ll wrap up making, and spend most of the session decorating. The instructors will take the decorated work to Castle Hill Center for the Arts, where they will be fired. Finished projects should be ready for pick up about a week later. Please call the Library at 508-487-1125 to sign up!
This program is funded by the Friends for the Truro Library and by a grant from the Truro Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

R.C. (Robert Chandler) on guitar & vocals
Special ‘K’ (Bill Kirby) on slap bass & vocals
Backbeat (Joe Gauvin) on cocktail drums & vocals
Hurricane (Jimmy V) on sax & vocals

The Truro Public Library is proud to host a Next Chapter Book Club for intellectually or developmentally disabled adolescents and adults on the Outer Cape. The fall session begins on September 26 and continues through December 19. We are offering volunteer facilitator training sessions at the Truro Library with local Program Coordinator Barbara Klipper on Tuesday, September 12, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., and on Saturday, September 23, from 10:00 a.m. to noon. The Next Chapter Book Club is a nationwide program that provides the fun and focus of a book club to members of our communities who often lack opportunities to explore written works in a relaxed, engaging, and constructive setting. Please consider joining us! Contact Tricia or Maggie at the Truro Library for more details.
Four French Films: Echoes of Proust
When the first volume of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time appeared in 1913, it created a sensation. A new way of expressing the mysteries of human emotion had been discovered. These four films, each in its own way, visualize intertwining dramas of complex interior lives. There will be time for discussion after the film.
Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne
In Robert Bresson’s second feature film, based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau, the director is already forging his singularly brilliant filmmaking, creating a moving study of the power of revenge and the strength of true love. (1945, 85 min.)
Please come to a meeting and discussion with Outer Cape Solarize Plus, and meet the installer. This program is sponsored by the Energy Committees of the Towns of Truro, Wellfleet, Eastham, and Provincetown and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center. Have both a greener way of life and save money in the process! The public is invited to hear about our program and to ask questions. Outer Cape Solarize Plus will be running during the Fall, Winter, and Spring of 2017 and 2018. They are now ready to schedule visits and provide quotes.
The Outer Cape Solarize Plus program has three goals, or “parts”: To encourage solar photovoltaic (PV) installations for residents and small businesses on the Outer Cape; to encourage the adoption of technologies that use green-generated electricity in place of carbon-based fuels; and to encourage the overall reduction of energy usage through conservation.
February 28, March 7, and March 14, 6:30 p.m.
Teams of one, two or three will compete for prizes, local fame, and the honor of having their names inscribed on the coveted “Truro Cup.” Nightly prizes, and additional prizes for the highest score over all three nights. You don’t have to come to all three nights, and your team can change members. This event is popular, so please sign up.
