  TUESDAY, JULY 28 ~ 7 PMnils bockmann

Nils V. Bockmann will give a free talk with slides about his 15 years of research on Peleg Nye, a Sandwich-born whaler who fell into the mouth of a harpooned sperm whale. That should have been the end of Peleg Nye but thanks to his captain's makeshift medical skills and sheer luck, Nye survived. He returned home an immediate celebrity, "The Jonah of Cape Cod". He returned to sea commanding four more whaling voyages. Long known only through local history and legend, Nye's story is historical fact brought to life by Bockmann's meticulous research, revealing the intricate world of 18th century whaling. Books will be available for purchase and signing.


SUPER SUMMER READS & RAFFLE ~ We're leaving the definition of a SUPER book up to you.  If you don't have a SUPER book in mind, pick one of our favorites and decide if it qualifies as SUPER to you. Then fill out a Super Hero Shield with the title and author's name on one side and your name and telephone number on the other side. Put your Shield in the red basket and you will be entered in a raffle to win one of four, $25 Gift Certificates to local Sandwich restaurants. The contest will run through Labor Day and the drawing will take place after that. This contest is for readers 18 years of age and older. One entry per person. This program is funded by the Friends of the Sandwich Public Library.

SummerReadUnmaskSloganYOUR POSSIBILITIES @ YOUR LIBRARY ~ Tuesday, July 28th and Tuesday, August 4th at 4:30pm it's YOGA for teens and tweens.
Yoga ... an opportunity to explore your inside AND outside powers.  The two sessions are an introduction to yoga with Teens in mind. You can register for one or both. Each Tuesday is a little different with some basics to start.  Exploring the yogic poses and breathing techniques that fine-tune balance, build strength, increase flexibility and self-awareness is beneficial and fun ( and sometimes a challenge!). Dress comfortably and bring water.  If you already have a yoga mat, great! If not, please indicate that you will need one when you register and we will provide one for you. Ages 10-19 years. Your instructor, Dawn Spunzo, is a Certified Yoga Teacher and a graduate of the Kind Yoga School 200 Hour Teacher Training Program.  She has practiced yoga for 15 years and taught for 2+ years at variety of locations on Cape Cod and enjoys customizing yoga classes to the students' needs. Programs are sponsored and supported by the Sandwich Kiwanis Levreault Trust, Sandwich Artisans, and Friends of the Sandwich Public Library.
