Summer Programming - Still Openings
Blue Collar America
In this four-part Vermont Humanities Council program, we'll be discussing the working class, looking past stereotypes to examine the realities of minimum wage existence, small-town economics, and social divisions. The discussions will be led by Suzanne Brown. This month (on Monday, July 21 at 6 pm), we'll discuss Empire Falls by Richard Russo. Copies of the book are available for checkout.
Colchester Farmers' Market
The Farmers' Market takes place every Wednesday, from 4-7 pm, on the green in front of the library. Stop by for food, crafts, and (often) music. The Market will take place rain or shine, and features local farmers, artisans, food vendors, a wellness table, and musicians. Limited parking is available at Burnham Library, with additional parking at Our Lady of Grace next door. The committee is still seeking vendors and musical acts. You can find more information, as well as a vendor application, at this link.
This week, our musical act will be Suzuki Violins, and at our wellness table will have Amy Bacon Catering and Colchester Family Practice with a food demonstration called "Fresh Sauces."
Adult Summer Reading Contests
This summer we've got a series of contests for adults. In Reading Reactions, fill out a ticket for each book you read - we'll pick one winner each month. For Program Round Up, you can fill out an entry for each adult program you attend during the summer. And finally, for Know Your Author, you can match authors with their dust jacket photos to be entered for a prize.
