Having successfully moved down the road, the Langley Whale Center will celebrate with a grand re-opening Saturday, Nov. 14.

Meet authors of orca literature, get free posters and children’s temporary tattoos, and meet the staff during the event.

Authors David Neiwert and Sandra Pollard will join Orca Network co-founders Howard Garrett and Susan Berta. Books will be for sale and the authors are happy to autograph theirs works, “Of Orcas and Men,” “Puget Sound Whales for Sale,” and “Orcas in our Midst.”

There will also be music about Lolita, the orca captured in Penn Cove several decades ago, performed by Audri Cooke, the youth docent of the whale center.

A traveling exhibit, “Whales in our Midst,” is on display courtesy of the Bainbridge Historical Society and Center for Whale Research.

The new space at 115 Anthes Ave., has more room for classes, author talks, movies and expansion of the Youth Activity Program. There is also a larger gift shop, from which sales help offset operations costs for the Langley Whale Center, according to a press release.
