Children's Department has Reopened!

We'd like to let people know that our children's department has reopened. While there are a few finishing touches that are still ongoing, such as some comfy furniture and a new mural, things are back to normal downstairs. We'd like to thank everyone for their patience throughout the process. Take a look at our new colors!

Ukrainian Egg Workshop

On Tuesday, Apr. 15, join us from 6-8:30 pm to learn the centuries old art of pysanky. Because of the use of hot wax, permanent dyes, and open flame, the session is only open to those age 12 through adult - bring or wear old clothing. It takes place at the Bayside Activity Center. Please register at this link.

Outsiders Book Discussion

In this four part Vermont Humanities Council program, we'll be discussing groups who fell outside cultural norms. The discussions will be led by Helene Lang. This month, we'll meet on Monday, Apr. 14 at 6 pm; we will discuss Inventing the Feeble Mind: A History of Mental Retardation in the United States by James W. Trent, Jr. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library!

Red Cross Babysitter's Training

Join us on Saturday, May 10 from 9 am-3 pm. American Red Cross Babysitter's Training is fun and fast-paced with hands-on activities, exciting video, role-plays and lively discussions. You'll learn to be the best babysitter on the block. Plus, you'll gain the confidence to make smart decisions and stay safe in any babysitting situation. Maximum of 12 participants, open to those 11-15 years-old. Please register at this link.
