Early November Programs at the Mattapoisett Library

November brings new and exciting programs to the Mattapoisett Library for people of all interests. Starting with Composting 101 presented by Casey E. Doyle, this two-part event takes place on Tuesday, November 2, and Thursday, November 4, at 6:30 pm on Zoom. Composting 101 will go over the understanding and science (a little) of what compost means, why everyone should do it, ingredients involved, how to speed up the process, and what to do with it. This program is funded by the Richard & Ann J. Prouty Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee. Registration is required to receive the Zoom invite link. If you are interested in participating, visit our library calendar or call the library for more information.

            On Wednesday, November 3, at 7:00 pm, Henry Quinlan presents “USSR- Russia: Myths, Mysteries and Spying” in person. Quinlan began his ventures in Russia in 1986 when he agreed to publish a book by the Soviet Diplomat Vitaly Churkin. This was the beginning of a 30-year involvement with the former Soviet Union and Russia. His presentation includes insider knowledge on living in Russia during the demise of the USSR, The Amber Room, The Czar’s Jewels, the impact of WWII, Vladimir Putin, spying for the FBI, and so much more. No registration required.

            On Saturday, November 6, at 10:30 am, Screen Printing returns. Join us as we teach you a simple method of screen printing. You bring in your fabric of choice and we will provide everything else! We encourage you to bring your own stencils if you have a particular design in mind! Recommended for ages 12 and up. Registration is required.

            Continuing our Start Locally, Live Sustainably initiative, we are beginning a book discussion on “Regeneration: Ending the climate crisis in one generation,” by Paul Hawken on Saturday, November 6, at 2:00 pm.

            On Tuesday, November 9, at 6:00 pm, Certified Gold KonMari Consultant Christine Thorn presents “The Lifestyle Magic of Tidying & Decluttering: The KonMari Method” on Zoom. Thorn offers an informative and entertaining presentation about the lifestyle benefits of the KonMari Method of tidying and decluttering. In her presentation, Thorn details the life changing benefits of KonMari’s category-by-category system of tidying, explaining how it focuses on keeping only those items which bring joy to your life, rather than on what needs to be eliminated, and discusses the importance of the fundamental KonMari question: Does this spark joy? Registration is required.
