Mattapoisett Free Public Library to celebrate Climate Prep Week

Sep 17, 2022

MATTAPOISETT – The Mattapoisett Free Public Library will celebrate Climate Preparedness Week from Sept. 24 to the 30.

Climate Preparedness Week was established by Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) in 2018 and seeks to inspire “learning, service, and actions to better prepare our communities for extreme weather events and the effects of climate change.”

This year's theme is “The Planet’s Health & Yours: Facing the Invisible Impacts of Climate Change.”

To celebrate the library will be offering a variety of activities and displays. There will be climate change themed crafts at the Media Lab on Tuesday, Sept. 27 and in the children's room during the week. Climate change themed book displays will be visible throughout the library.

Well Read Wednesday will be discussing “Under a White Sky” by Elizabeth Kolbert on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 6:30 p.m. Those interested in participating can pick up the book at the library prior to the event.

The library also has "The Climate Ribbon," a participatory art ritual of love and hope for the Climate Justice Movement, project available the entire month of September near the side entrance.
