February 28, 2017

Create a piece of art from a piece of Sturgis Library! Stop by the Sturgis Library’s Circulation Desk and ask for a shelf from old 1920s bookshelves that were stored for many years in the basement. Take the shelf home and transform it into something new. Paint on it, sculpt it, carve it, cut it up, sand it down — whatever inspires you. Then donate it back to the Library by August 1st, 2017 to be auctioned off at the Library’s 150th Anniversary gala.

All proceeds from these works of art will benefit the newly established Sturgis Library Preservation Fund. Monies from this fund will be used exclusively for the preservation of the Library’s building, grounds, special collections, and archives.

150 Years of Reading Great Books

150 Years of Reading Great Books

February 28, 2017

Sturgis Library first opened its doors for business in August 1867, making 2017 our 150th anniversary.  As part of our celebration, our winter literary discussion program will focus on books of note from the past 150 years. 
Anne Speyer, editor, library director and teacher, will lead a discussion of selections from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass. 
When the first edition of Walt Whitman’s anthology Leaves of Grass burst onto the literary scene in 1855, it not only changed forever the shape of poetry but also revolutionized its content.  Shocking to American nineteenth century sensibilities—and it surely shocked many staid Cape Codders—Whitman celebrated everything about being human and being alive: our bodies and emotions, our work and our play, our desires and our diversity.
This program is free, but registration is required

 

Location: Sturgis Library 3090 Main St. (Route 6A) Barnstable Village
