Hot Docs Film Series Continues
Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m.

Hot Docs, a new series of documentary films running from January into February, continues on Wednesday, Jan. 25, with a 7 p.m. screening of a 2016 film from director Werner Herzog. It's a dynamic and provocative look at technology and the shape of things to come -- combining irony, scientific arguments and the sociological reflections that are the director's trademark.

This film series is free, and it's for adults.

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!
