Do you think human trafficking is a topic for other places?? Not here on Cape Cod? Think again. There are victims of this terrible crime right here on Cape Cod! Please come and hear Meredith Bair of PATH (People Against Trafficking (Humans) give us an overview of the problem as it exists on the Cape and what we can do about it. Meredith is a Smith College alumna and has a grant from Smith to collect stories from the victims of trafficking for an archive. Don’t miss her enlightening talk!

 REMEMBER TO BRING THOSE BOOKS FOR THE EXCHANGE! This is a perfect time to stock up on winter reading. Members bring books they are finished with (and are willing to part with)—we offer them for $1.00. Bring books, find books.
