Thanks to the ingenuity of Peter Newbury, the Woods Hole Library now has a large outdoor movie screen in our courtyard! We are thrilled to be able to screen films, though as with everything these days, attendance will be extremely limited. All movie goers must sign up in advance by calling the Library at 508-548-8961 or emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current movie schedule is as follows. All films will be shown on Friday evenings, with a 7:00PM showtime. Please note, all screenings will be weather dependent!

Oct. 2: And She Could Be Next, a film by by Marjan Safinia and Grace Lee and Jyoti Sarda And She Could Be Next follows a defiant movement of women of color as they transform politics from the ground up. Filmed during the historic 2018 midterm elections, the series features organizers and candidates (including Rashida Tlaib and Stacey Abrams) as they fight for a truly reflective government, asking whether democracy can be preserved—and made stronger—by those most marginalized. This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS www.pbs.org/pov … and hopefully more to come as the weather allows!
