In a phenomenon referred to as “ghost fishing" derelict crab pots are lost from storms or cut lines and can have devastating impacts on the ecosystem and local economy. These derelict crab pots continue to catch and kill marine life when lost, like the Northern diamondback terrapin and otherwise harvestable crabs. These lost harvests translate to economic losses for fishermen and the local community. In addition, the pots disrupt navigation and damage sensitive ecosystems. The combined consequences of these abandoned pots reduce the integrity of the Barnegat Bay ecosystem and diminish its functionality for the community.
Through a series of public and private partnerships, and with the help of the local fishing community, Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF) is spearheading a project to inventory and remove more than 1,000 abandoned crab pots in Barnegat Bay.

It’s not too late to join the library’s annual reading challenge! Read or listen to books that fit the 12 categories – submit the form – win a prize! Paper copies are available at branches and there’s a printable version linked through our catalog. No age restrictions!
At this time, White Raven Investigations and Paranormal Society (WRIP) has done eight investigations at the Cape May Court House Library. Come and hear the surprising results!
White Raven Investigations & Paranormal Society (WRIP) was founded in June of 2015 by Kelliann Muller and John Piggott after departing another group over philosophical differences and the direction that group was heading. Four of our members are volunteer firefighters and our day jobs are all in community service fields from public relations to public services to public safety. Helping people is what we do.
Ultimately, the goal of White Raven is to help those experiencing paranormal activity in any way we can. Along the way, we strive to learn as much as possible about a realm that consists mainly of the unknown. White Raven has conducted investigations in private homes, businesses, public buildings, historic sites and, of course, right here in the Cape May County Library.

Getting started with Raspberry Pi computers - Build a retro gaming console
A Raspberry Pi is a tiny stand alone computer about the size of a deck of cards. You can use it for all kinds of things from robotics to a living room media center PC.
At this meetup I'll show you how to setup your Pi as a retro gaming computer you can hook up to your TV or computer monitor.
All you really need is a Raspberry Pi, memory card, and a compatible USB controller.
We're starting a new book club! Come to the first meeting to help us decide what to read. Snacks and good conversation provided.

Is your wildlife garden not living up to your expectations? Are you afraid of what the neighbors think? Are some of your plants misbehaving? Confused by what’s what: weed or treasured native? This workshop includes tips and advice based on 40 years of wildlife gardening experience.
Pat Sutton has keenly studied the natural world for over 30 years (as the naturalist at the Cape May Point State Park in the 1970s and 1980s and for 21 years, until 2007, as the naturalist and program director at the Cape May Bird Observatory). Pat has an undergraduate degree in Literature and a Masters Degree in Environmental Education. She and her husband (Clay Sutton) wrote the landmark book, Birds and Birding at Cape May (2006), the in-depth result of their efforts over many years documenting and protecting the migration and the Cape May area that they so love. Other books by Pat and Clay include How to Spot Butterflies (1999), How to Spot Hawks & Eagles (1996), and How to Spot an Owl (1994). Today Pat is a free-lance writer, naturalist, educator, lecturer, tour leader, and wildlife habitat / conservation gardening champion. Her own wildlife garden is a teaching garden included on many tours and featured in programs and workshops she teaches.
