Holliston Library News

There’s plenty going on at the Holliston Public Library this summer.  On Monday, Aug 6 at 11 am the Morning Book Club will discuss Marie Benedict’s The Other Einstein, a novel about Albert Einstein’s spouse and her efforts to make a place for herself in the world of science dominated by men.  The History Book club participants will choose a title they recently read and share it with the group on Tuesday, Aug 14 at 6:30 pm.  New members are always warmly welcomed to either group at any time.  Readers may contribute their own ideas or sit and listen.  Books are available about a month before the discussions.

The film selection for Movie Monday on Monday, Aug 13 at 12:30 pm is The Post starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.  It relates the true story of Washington Post owner Katherine Graham and editor Ben Bradlee and their exposure of government secrets in 1971.  The film is rated PG-13 and runs for 116 minutes.  Popcorn and beverages are served and everyone is welcome.

A telescope can now be borrowed from the library to watch the night sky at home.  It is a gift of the Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc and can be borrowed free of charge with a valid library card for 2 weeks.  Instructions and guide to the sky are included.  The telescope can be reserved in advance and weighs only 14 pounds.  It is powerful enough to view the Rings of Saturn, the Galilean moons and nearby star clusters.

The library is looking for someone who is fluent in French to volunteer to lead a conversation group at the library.  The group will allow patrons to build their knowledge of the language by speaking to others in French.  To volunteer, call Leslie McDonnell at 508-429-0617 or email at lmcdonnell@minlib.net.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
