First Friday Free Films
Captains Courageous

Captains CourageousThe classic 1937 film, Captains Courageous, will be shown as part of Eastham Library's "One Book/One Town" series. Join us in Eastham Town Hall, 2500 State Highway, on Friday, August 7, 6:30 p.m... and get our your handkerchiefs! Based on the Kipling novel, Captains Courageous tells the story of Harvey, an over-privileged boy who falls from a luxury liner. He is rescued and pulled aboard a Grand Banks fishing schooner. Arrogant and lazy, Harvey alienates the entire crew except for Manuel, a Portuguese fisherman who patiently teaches him about hard work and cooperation. Spencer Tracy won an Oscar for his portrayal of Manuel.

Call for Turnip Recipes
Deadline extended

TUrnip Festival Page
The Eastham Library is collecting tried and turnip true recipes for possible inclusion in a soon to be published cookbook featuring Eastham's pride and joy ... the Eastham Turnip. Tuber enthusiasts have been clamoring for a turnip cookbook but all copies of the Library's 2007 cookbook, First Encounter with a Turnip, sold out years ago.

The annual Turnip Cook-Off, the culinary cornerstone of the Turnip Fest, has received a wide variety of creative and original entries over the past 12 years. Curried Coconut Turnip Soup, Turnip Pumpkin Cheesecake, Turnip Donuts and Eastham Turnip Apple Ice Cream Pie are a few of the dishes to be highlighted in this new publication.

Cookbook compilers are seeking recipes in all categories, from appetizers to desserts. While the Library has all recipes submitted in the annual Turnip Cook-Off for 2013 and 2014, previous contest entrants are encouraged to share their turnip delights. The committee is especially hopeful that cook-off champions from 2008 through 2012 will send their prize winning recipes. Recipes should include list of ingredients used, measurements, complete instructions, pan sizes and baking temperature. 

Include name, phone and/or email address. Recipes can be sent electronically to or by mail to Marianne Sinopoli, Eastham Public Library, 2510 State Highway, Eastham MA 02642. Deadline for submission is  June 6, 2015.

The revised and updated Friends of the Eastham Library Turnip Cookbook should be available in time for the 2015 Turnip Festival scheduled to held Saturday, November 21st at Nauset Regional High School.
