Mammoth in library space

Mammoths in (library) space: A library orientation

Never been in a six floor library before? Need to find books “on reserve” but not sure where to go? Looking to learn more about the library’s spaces, resources and services? Stop by Frost Library anytime this month and explore library space: take the self-directed Mammoths in (Library) Space Tour! To begin the tour, go to the welcome station across from Frost's circulation desk (look for the poster with balloons) and pick up a library orientation sticker card.

Complete the tour and receive a gift card to Frost Cafe plus a chance to win our grand prize: a unique space mammoth t-shirt or tote and a gift card to Antonio’s Pizza!

"Our" Story Exhibit: 400 Years of Wampanoag History

“Our” Story is an interactive, multimedia exhibit that frames the 1620 Pilgrim arrival in Plymouth within a long history of Wampanoag adaptation and innovation. The exhibit's content ranges from videos by award-winning Mashpee journalist, author and filmmaker Paula Peters, to art by Mashpee artist, writer and activist Robert Peters and his son, Robert Peters Jr.

Each year, a new theme is added to the traveling exhibit; the first installation debuted in 2014 with “Captured 1614” providing a critical back story to colonization and the roots of the American holiday of Thanksgiving. “The Messenger Runner” added new context regarding the Wampanoag tribe’s communication traditions. The newest panel “The Great Dying” depicts the catastrophic effects of a plague that devastated the Wampanoag nation between 1616 and 1619.
