Feature Presentation

THE LAST DRAGON

On Monday, June 27 at 7:00 PM everyone is invited to help us kick off our summer reading program. Join The Puppet People as they retell the fairy tale “The Last Dragon” by E. Nesbitt. Are all princesses helpless? Are all knights brave and strong? Are all dragons evil? Explore the issues of stereotypes, greed, discrimination, self-esteem, and friendship with this vivid puppet production.

This show features classical music, large rod puppets, mouth puppets, and a 7 ft dragon and a life-size knight on horseback for a jousting scene you will never forget. Ages 5 and up.

The program will be held at the Petersburgh Veterans Memorial Community Center (PVMCC).

Art In The Library

The artist currently displaying his paintings is Tom Atkins from West Pawlet, Vermont. He is an artist, poet, and writer who moved from Virginia to Vermont in 2009. “When I moved to Vermont, I also moved to color. I rediscovered art, but this time not as a representative of a thing, but as a way to capture a mood, a feeling.”

His website is http://www.quarryhouse.us

Stop in and see the colorful artwork.

Any interested artists, who have artwork or photographs that they would like to display at the library, can call the library at 658-2927. We have wall space to display your art and would love to hear from you. There is no charge to display it here.

Book Discussion Group

The group meets at 7:00 P.M. on the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. NEXT BOOK CLUB: Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee on Wednesday, June 8TH at 7 PM.

The books being discussed are available from the Library so you can read them prior to the meeting.  New members are always welcome to join. Please join us even if you are only able to come once in a while or just want to come for the books in which you are interested.
