Film Series Starts Wednesday, March 28  

Film Series Starts Wednesday, March 28

A new film series, "4 from the '50s," opens with the first of four Wednesday screenings at 7 p.m. on March 28.

Our first film is a 1999 production from director Anthony Minghella. It's a stylish thriller, loosely based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, which beautifully captures the sensual glamour of Italy in the late 1950s -- a playground for young, wealthy American expatriates.

Please note, this series (which continues through April 18) is 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!
