Shout-Out from TPL Staff 

Hello, Library Community!

We sure do miss you. We are eagerly awaiting directives for a safe reopening as soon as possible, probably starting with curbside service and working our way along from there. In the meantime, one of us at a time is often in the building during work hours, so if you call, you might just get us! We will do our best to answer general questions, put an in-house, available book or other item on hold for you, or help with technology as you navigate our online options. We are also excited to let folks know that we will be interviewing Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project guests Jennifer Weston, Language Department Director for the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, and Anne Makepeace, filmmaker. We had hoped to show Anne Makepeace’s film We Still Live Here [Âs Nutayuneân] in-house this spring, but that program is on hold for now. In the meantime, hear about the project, and buy the film or borrow it from a library once we are reopened. The airing of the audio interview will be posted on all our social media accounts and on our website. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Truro Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Then stay tuned for an interview with Nathaniel Philbrick just a couple of weeks later. We also hope to bring many of our scheduled spring and summer programs to you in a podcast or digital visual format. Visit soon—more to come! We also encourage you to follow the Truro Public Library on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter to learn what is happening in our current locked-down yet fluid state. And we look forward to seeing you soon!
