These adorable, furry marine mammals--often seen floating on their backs holding hands--reveal the health of the coastal ecosystem along the Pacific Ocean. Once hunted for their prized fur during the 1700s and 1800s, these animals nearly went extinct. Only now, nearly a century after hunting ceased, are populations showing stable growth in some places. Sea otters are a keystone species in coastal areas, feeding on sea urchins, clams, crab and other crustaceans. When they are present, kelp beds are thick and healthy, providing homes for an array of sealife. When otters disappear, sea urchins take over, and the kelp disappears along with all of the creatures that live in the beds. Now, thanks to their protected status, sea otters are making a comeback in California, Washington, and Alaska.
Todd McLeish is a science writer with three published books, all on natural history topics.

More than any other art form, opera is meant to appeal directly to the senses. All you need are eyes, ears, and a soul to appreciate opera. Every opera lover knows that Aida is written in the style of “Grand Opera.” It has gigantic and spectacular scenery; it calls for six outstanding solo singers and hundreds of choristers, dancers, and supernumeraries. It requires a very large orchestra, augmented by stage bands and various other instruments, playing onstage and backstage. The opera has four acts and seven scenes. It is truly grand! Erika Reitshamer is an engaging teacher whose knowledge and love of opera will inspire all, and her open style and sense of humor are irresistible. She has lectured on opera and great singers of opera for many years and was active in the formation of the Boston Lyric Opera Company more than 40 years ago. This program, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and open to all.
