Big Week at the Library

There is no reason to stay home when you can be part of many different exciting programs at the library - no matter how old or young you are! On Monday we have two programs: the film Nanook of the North at 3:30pm and afternoon program for children and adults and Living in Navajoland with Suellen Howley at 7pm. On Tuesday we have The Lost Nation Theater continuing their dramatic reading of The Maltese Falcon in the periodical room at 7pm. Refreshments will be served. On Wednesday we continue with our Inuit series with Bill Fitzhugh of the Artic Studies Center from the Smithsonian Institute. We anticipate a large crowd and have moved this program to the Trinity Methodist Church next door. This is also a First Wednesdays program through the Vermont Humanities Council. On Thursday, the WORLD PREMIERE of the Soap Bubbles Circus with Rob Mermin will entertain children at 7pm. Don't stay home - go to the library!
*Update* I forgot to mention that we also have the Dark Knight Comics club that meets every Tuesday afternoon at 3:30pm.
