At the Woods Hole Public Library on March 6 at 7:30 PM local writer Elizabeth Saito will give an illustrated talk on the history of the Woods Hole Child Center preschool

Ms. Saito has spent the last year researching the history of the Woods Hole Child Center, Falmouth's first preschool, founded during World War II. Her talk will feature archival photographs and documents from the school's early years, as well as oral history collected from former students and parents.

The history of the Child Center reflects historical trends in both Woods Hole Village and the culture at large, particularly the women's movement, which Ms. Saito's talk will touch upon.

The Child Center is set to publish Ms. Saito’s book about the school in June, coinciding with the school's 75th anniversary party.
