On Saturday, February 8th at 10:30 artist, Casey Junker Bailey, will be on hand to help children of all ages make beautiful Valentines for friends and family. All are welcome!
On display through the middle of March are the beautiful oil paintings by Nancy Calicchio. These landscapes are of Vermont scenes and reveal the artist's fascination with the natural world.
Nancy is mostly self-taught and she paints outdoors deftly capturing the sky, hills, fields, streams and farms through the seasons. This exhibit is a delight to show and we think that you will appreciate Nancy's talent and expertise when you visit.
Thanks to the generosity of The Stratton Foundation and The Thrifty Attic, the library has acquired a new state of the arts Learning Center computer for pre-schoolers through age 10. We thank Stratton and The Thrifty to be able to share with all children this wonderful, fun learning tool!
