But in the middle of it all, he feels an effects of a dog whistle and he itches everywhere and even discovers that his nails are longer and sharp. When he came home from a party, he discovers his new problem. He is a half human-wolf hybrid. He tries to keep this a secret, but during a basketball game the secret comes out and it helped Scott to turn his life around, the basketball team starts to become a contender for the state championships. He became very popular, and he was discovered by Pamela, and begin to go out with each other (despite that Pamela is still going out with Mick).

altDonate Used DVDs & Books.
We may add them to our collection for others to borrow or place them in our ongoing book sale. Either way, your donation helps the library and your neighbors.

DVDs The Library DVD collection gets heavy use and it's hard to keep up with the demand for new and varied titles. If you have DVDs in good condition collecting dust on your shelves, please consider giving them an new active life at the library. Even if it's a title you know the library already owns, we are always happy to replace our worn copy with a donated copy in better shape.

Books Donations of recently published fiction and non fiction books (2014-2017) are also appreciated to round out the library's collection. Donated books need to be in good condition to make it on to the shelves. If we decide not to add a donated book to the collection, we can still place it in the Book Sale Carts in the lobby. Proceeds from those book sales help purchase new books and DVDs for the library collection.

We ask that you bring your DVD and book donations to the library during open hours, so that we can quickly sort through and pick out the items that make sense for the library shelves or our book sale. All others can go to the used book box at the WRATS. Please don't leave boxes of donations on the porch.

If you have any questions, please e-mail or call 978-544-3559. THANKS!!

Herrick Room Gallery

In Response to Paper:
Recent Works by Julia Rabin

Opening Reception:  Saturday, September 30, 2017 

In Response to Paper is a collection of ten recent works by Wendell artist Julia Rabin in the Herrick Gallery of the Wendell Free Library during the months of September and October, 2017. 

Rabin is a bookbinder by profession, but as an independent artist works with many media.  She gathers materials happened upon by chance; often too they are sought out in nature.  With this collection, Rabin plays with line in a reverent and playful exploration of scale, presentation, and perspective while paying homage to paper as an aesthetic in and of itself. 

In Black Deckle, Evening over Roundhouse, Rabin altered a found frame with digital photographs of clouds and sky printed on Nyodo Japanese tissue.  The then newly lacquered and varnished frame surrounds another three dimensional rectangular frame of black deckles (the cut off edges) from Twin Rocker paper.  A single photo of sky anchors the center of the structure, while also creating an outward trajectory that draws focus to the ephemeral character of the natural world. 

Julia Rabin - Black Deckle, Evening over Roundhouse

Rabin’s In Response to Paper is a collection that dissects the inherent qualities of paper to bring the focus back to its place within the natural world.  

As an added bonus, Julia has other three dimensional works on display in the library’s main entrance glass case.  One is moved by the variety in this show, yet also pauses with a curiosity inspired by a common intention.

by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter
