The current exhibit at the Hingham Public Library showcases images of lesser-known places of beauty in the town and elsewhere by photographer Susan Hagstrom.

The collection includes secluded scenes from More-Brewer Woods and World's End, as well as from Chatham and other parts of Cape Cod.

Susan's exhibit, called "In My Little Town", opened Oct. 3 in the library's Clemens Gallery and runs through Nov. 5. All of the photographs are available for purchase, and a portion of the sale will benefit the library, located at 66 Leavitt St. The library is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. It's closed Fridays and Sundays; however, it will be open 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays starting Oct. 18.

According to the library website, Susan began her photography career taking sports action shots and now specializes in fine art prints, portraits, and commercial and wedding photography. She is an active member of the South Shore Camera Club, where many of her prints have received recognition in monthly competitions. Her award-winning work has been exhibited at the Thomas Crane Library in Quincy, the Duxbury Art Complex Museum, and the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset. Samples of her work can also be seen at the Fernwood Gallery in Norwell, the Hingham Square Gallery and on her website, Snapshots by Susan.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
