October Art Exhibit
Meg Clarke
Connected by Sand and Sea:
Photographs from the United Arab Emirates
October 1-30

Artist’s Statement:
“The 15 photographs in this exhibit were taken during my five years living in Abu Dhabi from 2013-2018. They highlight areas of traditional importance in the United Arab Emirates. The images are divided into five sections: Desert, Falconry, Camels, Dhows, and Mosques. My hope is that the viewers will be drawn to the commonalities of sand and sea in Truro and the United Arab Emirates and that this connection will serve as a gateway to appreciating the beauty and richness treasured in another place and tradition.”

Halloween Party!
with Science Tellers
Saturday, October 26, 10:00 a.m.-noon

From 10:00-11:00 a.m., join us for Science Tellers’ action-packed and educational alien adventure using science experiments for special effects. ….During a midnight meteor shower, something mysterious falls from the sky toward Earth — but it’s not a shooting star. Two curious kids venture into the forest to investigate and find themselves mixed up with a family from another planet! Pursued by a crazy space scientist, they must risk everything to rescue the aliens and get them back to their spaceship — before it’s too late!….  Throughout this amazing intergalactic story, Science Tellers uses science experiments to bring the story to life! In the second part of the show, they will go “behind the scenes” of the special effects and recreate the science experiments with the help of volunteers from the audience.

From 11:00–noon, games, Crafts, Snacks, Face Painting, and a little bit of Spookiness will be located throughout the library! All welcome!

The Local Journalism Project
Open Newsroom Truro 
Thursday, November 7, 6:00 p.m.
The Provincetown Independent’s nonprofit Local Journalism Project invites community members to join in making local news more collaborative. The editor (and from time to time reporters and newsmakers) will be on hand to hear about issues that are important to you, and to answer your questions about the role of journalism in sharing news for and about the community.

The Project’s Open Newsroom sessions are being held in each of the Outer Cape’s libraries, with Truro gatherings set for the first Thursday of each month, beginning soon! Special themes will surely emerge but this first session is open-ended. Come with your thoughts and questions. Meetings are free and open to all.
