Dennis Historical Society library to celebrate new home

The Dennis Historical Society invites the public to celebrate the new home of its Pauline (Wixon) Derick Library at the West Dennis Public Library, Sunday February 21, 2010 from 1 - 4 pm. Refreshments will be served.

The library consists of collections of books, manuscripts, photographs, scrapbooks and other ephemera related to the Town of Dennis and the mid-Cape area, according to CCGS member and DHS Historian Burt Derick. Of special interest are the maritime collections, diaries, early deeds and letters, and genealogical information.

Recently relocated from the Josiah Dennis Manse Museum, the library enjoys more spacious quarters on the second floor of the West Dennis Public Library, located at 260 Main Street, Route 28, West Dennis, MA.

See the Feb. 4, 2010 edition of The Register (Yarmouth) for more about the library's move and and its collections.
