Let’s Connect!

The Library is a great place to connect.

Meet up with friends and neighbors every Saturday for chess and scrabble at 10:30. Every Wednesday is Coffee Time at 10:30, with coffee and pastries provided by Tony’s Market in Oak Bluffs.

Starting in September the Children’s Room is hosting Game On!, a children’s program where you can play chess, board games, and Wii with your friends every Saturday at 10:30.

How about connecting with us virtually? You can find us on Instagram, posting pictures of our various programs, and on Facebook where you can answer our daily question or find out our hours. If you’re on Foursquare, check-in next time you’re here! Or stop by our Little Free Library in Post Office Square in Oak Bluffs and check-in! Who wouldn’t want to be the Mayor of the Library? We’re also on Twitter, tweeting about our events and library-related news.

Find us on your favorite social media!

Electronic media aside, we’re nice people here. Stop in and connect sometime, we’d love to see you.

Langston Hughes Poem on Display

The Oak Bluffs Public Library has an exclusive exhibition of an original manuscript by the African-American poet, Langston Hughes. The manuscript of the poem “Cubes” consists of three drafts and the final version of the poem; each draft is signed in full by the poet. What is very interesting, and significant, is that you will be able to see and examine the different written changes, alterations, that Langston Hughes made himself before the final version.

This is a great opportunity to view an original manuscript by Langston Hughes, stop by soon as the exhibit is only here for a couple of weeks!
