Members of the Pawcatuck Valley Coin Club will give an overview of numismatics, the study or collection of coins, paper currency, and related objects. They will share their individual collections including Civil War coins and coin-like objects such as tokens and medals, classified as exonumia. After the presentation, members will be on hand to provide a history and approximate value of any items you might want to show them. Something of interest for the beginning hobbyist and the seasoned collector! For more information about the club: www.pawcatuckvalleycoinclub.com.

Many species of waterfowl take shelter from harsher northern climates right here on the shore of Academy Cove, directly behind the library, and in the marshes opposite the entrance to Boone St. Emily Westcott and Bill Carpenter were inspired to create this 1/2 hour film by their walks here and throughout Rhode Island. A slide presentation will introduce the many species found in the winter and will compare the variations in feeding, mating rituals and migratory patterns. Please register.
