Online Library Resources

The Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton will be closed through Sunday, April 19. Book-drops will be closed, loans will be extended, and fines waived. The Friends of the Rogers Memorial Library Book Shop will be closed until the end of April. The library offers many resources for its patrons at www.myrml.org.

Southampton History Museum

Director of the Southampton History Museum, Tom Edmunds, believes the museum’s public spaces offer a way to stay in touch with nature. Relax on a bench at Rogers Mansion to view the historic buildings, or observe the sunset through the budding trees. In Emma’s Garden at the Pelletreau Silver Shop, the perennial herbs are waking up. The staff is also working on virtual tours to keep connected. Visit www.southamptonhistory.org for more information.

Southampton Animal Shelter

The Southampton Animal Shelter is hosting The Greatest Party That Never Was on April 30. It’s a very fake event for a very real cause. Visit www.southamptonanimalshelter.com/dontshowup.

Your donation to this imaginary event will provide homeless pets with care and support.
