Happening at the Library...

Free Greeting Card Workshop

 Have you always wanted to learn to make your own greeting cards?  With Spring, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter just around the corner here’s the free workshop for you!,  On Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 1-3 PM, Jane Clark will hold a card-making workshop at the Dailey Memorial Library in Derby.  Attendees may make three cards of their choice and materials will be provided.  The workshop will be held downstairs at the Library.   
Space is limited, so please either email daileylibrary@gmail.com  or call 766-5063 to register.


Cabin Fever Book Discussions

Come get a book and join the lively discussions on Sustainability, (a book discussion series sponsored by Vermont Humanities Council and the Library.)  Discussions will be at the Library in Derby Center on Sundays, beginning at 10:30 am.  (Please note that “The Town That Food Saved” by Ben Hewitt will be held on Monday, April 6 at 10:30 am.)

“Green” and “sustainable” have become so widely used that they have nearly lost their meanings. This series explores how different authors and communities understand the multiple definitions and connotations of ecological sustainability and try to make it work in their world.  

The books will be discussed as follows:

March 01 ~ A Cafecito Story by Julia Alverez and the Man Who Planted Trees by Jean Giono
March 15 ~ Gaviotas: A Village to Reinvent the World by Alan Weisman
April 06 (Monday)   ~ The Town That Food Saved by Ben Hewitt
April 26   ~ Another Turn of the Crank by Wendell Berry

All discussions will be led by Vt. Humanities Council Scholar, Rachael Cohen.  Copies of the books are available at the Library.   The program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Barbara Whitehill, at 766-5063.
