Best Bets for Wednesday, July 9

Looking for something to do this afternoon? Our Best Bets are a concert in the courtyard, a trip to the Mesozoic era and open mike performances.

The "Summer Sounds" Courtyard Music Series at the Beverly Public Library continues this evening from 6 to 7 in the Winter Street Courtyard. Singer/songwriter duo Eleanor Jane and Nick Consone will perform as part of the library's twice-monthly live outdoor music series showcasing local talent. "Summer Sounds" is sponsored by the Friends of the Beverly Public Library and takes place rain or shine; if it rains, the concert will move indoors to the Sohier Room. Everyone is welcome to attend. To learn more about the series, contact Drew at 978-921-6062 or belt@noblenet.org. The library is located at 32 Essex St. in Beverly.

Take a trip to the Mesozoic era to explore dinosaurs during Hamilton-Wenham Public Library's Dinoman program from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The program includes magic, merry mayhem, and magnificent, 10-foot-high inflatable dinosaurs. To learn more, visit www.hwlibrary.org. The library is located at 14 Union St. in South Hamilton.

Teens can show off their talents during Pingree School's Open Mike Night for Teens, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the outdoor Hedge Garden behind Pingree School.
