Book Group Meets Wednesday, June 8

The Edgartown Library's book discussion group, led by Jean Stone, holds its next meeting on Wednesday, June 8.

Up for discussion at 3 p.m, will be The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love and Loss. This book, made up largely of emails between news correspondent Anderson Cooper and his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, is the record of an extended conversation that brought mother and son closer together.

Planning a Visit to Boston?
Stop Here First for Museum Passes

On your next trip to Boston, perhaps you'd enjoy an hour or three at the Museum of Fine Arts. If this is on your itinerary, do stop at our circulation desk before heading north -- and pick up a free pass. One pass entitles two visitors admission to the museum for $10 each. That's one more great reason to visit the library. The passes are generously purchased for us by the Friends of the Edgartown Library.

As you plan your fall travels around New England, you should definitely visit this page of the CLAMS network catalogue. It lists discount tickets to all sorts of destinations, from Battleship Cove to Mystic Aquarium, from the New Bedford Whaling Museum to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Enjoy!
