All the Presidents' Women Presented b y the  Delvena Theatre Company

Fans of The Delvena Theatre Company will be happy to hear that the acting troupe is returning to the Library just in time for Election Day with its performance of "All the Presidents' Women,"  Tues., Nov. 6 at 6:30 p.m.
This show is a live performance which looks into the lives (sometimes behind closed doors) of some our U.S. presidents and their wives. Find out which of our most famous first ladies was committed to a mental institution by her own son. Have we already had a female president? Could one of our first ladies have murdered her husband while he was still in office?
This edutainment production will feature Lynne Moulton and Fran Baron in multiple roles. Joseph Zamparelli is the director of the production.

This program is free and open to the public, and no registration is required. Sponsored by the Friends of the Middleborough Public Library.

This Month's Marvelous Museum Pass

Telling the iconic story of Plymouth Colony was the fulfillment of a young archaeologist's boyhood dream. With help and support from friends, family and business associates , Henry Hornblower II  started the Museum in 1947 as two English cottages and a fort on Plymouth's historic waterfront. Since then the Museum has grown to include Mayflower II (1957), the English Village (1959), the Wampanoag Homesite (1973), the Hornblower Visitor Center (1987), the Craft Center (1992), the Maxwell and Nye Barns (1994) and the Plimoth Grist Mill.

Generations of families, millions of school children and countless people from all over the world have visited and participated in Plimoth Plantation's educational experiences that spark the imagination, delight the senses, touch the heart and enrich the mind. Its permanent exhibits tell the complex and interwoven stories of two distinct cultures, English and Native
Please note -- Plimoth Plantation is open through Sun., Nov. 25 and will re-open the second Saturday in March 2019. 
This pass admits six people at a reduced admission of $16/adult and $10/child.
