    September's Art Exhibit features the work of artist and visual historian Karen Rinaldo from her book "In the Wake of the Mayflower," co-authored with Kevin M. Doyle (2019).

    Five Images, One Theme

    To sustain interest in the arts, encourage conversation and response, and provide suggestions for reading and viewing, the Eastham Library invites the public this summer to enjoy a presentation of nonlocal artwork unified by the theme, Community. These gorgeous, enlarged images can be viewed from the library’s Reading Garden.  The images and corresponding multigenerational reading and responding suggestions may also be viewed by clicking on this link. If you would like a take-away packet of the images and companion pieces, please call the library (508-240-5950) to arrange a time for curbside pick-up.
