“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.”
Join us for a lecture and tea-tasting with Community Herbalist Sarah Naciri. Known as Adaptogens, Superior Medicines, Herbal Tonics, and Rasayana herbs—these herbs have been used for thousands of years to enhance immunity, boost energy, promote longevity, and enhance vitality on a cellular level. Adaptogens help us adapt to the stresses of modern life and increase adaptability to our environment. This program will focus on Reishi, Schizandra berry, Ashwagandha root, and Astragalus root. We will taste the tea of each herb discussed. This program is geared toward adults and young adults.

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!
Come dance at the Library with DJ Beth O’Rourke, and enjoy activities and snacks throughout the main space. Get down, get loud–no shushing in the house!
