Discussion of VT Reads book, “Wonder”by R.J. Palacio
A discussion of Wonder with scholar Francette Cerulli. We have several copies of this book at the library. Read this book with your family and come join the discussion of Wonder.
VT Reads is a program of the Vermont Humanities Council and hosted by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
We have been busy this spring and summer at the library, taking care of some necessary lawn and landscaping work. After tearing up the lawn for our District Heat installation and chimney repair work, we took the opportunity to till in and reseed the grass. We also were able to pull out some invasive Burning Bush on the side of the lawn neighboring Trinity Church and plan to plant new, non-invasive shrubs in that same area. The library purchased two new benches soon to be installed on the property; these benches match the new benches throughout the downtown.
We love to have patrons and community members on our lawn, though we kindly ask folks to use the walkways rather than the lawn as a pathway. We are keeping the lawn a bit longer than normal right now, while the new grass is taking root, but you are welcome to use it for picnics, gatherings, and of course, reading books!
We are thrilled to learn that StoryWalk has made its way to South Africa posted by the Shine Centre in Cape Town. Who would have thought that a simple, but creative idea would start in Montpelier, Vermont and spread throughout the world! Thank you Anne Ferguson for having that spark of imagination that led to StoryWalk. The Kellogg-Hubbard Library is so happy to be your partner along with the VT Bike & Ped Coalition in sharing this wonderful idea - children's books, nature, walking and having fun - with children and adults who value the power of children's literature and exercise.
If you have been looking for a book group, here is an opportunity to start one. KHL, along with the Montpelier Senior Center and the Gary Home will be helping to organize a new book discussion group. The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 24th at 1pm. This will be a planning session. Rachael Grossman, Outreach Coordinator at the KHL will be on hand to facilitate. There are three other meetings scheduled: 7/29, 8/26, and 9/30. All meetings will be held at the Gary Home (149 Main Street) at 1pm. Light refreshments will be served. Register at the Senior Center by Friday, 6/20.
