Giving Thanks Musical Storytime: Bring your little ones and your singing voices to the library on Saturday, Nov. 23, at 10:30 am for a special musical story time with Dawna Hammers, a local music teacher. She will lead a celebration of the season of giving with stories and songs. All ages are welcome.
Volunteers Needed: In the spirit of Thanksgiving, perhaps you would like to give thanks to the Pierson Library by volunteering your time. Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks and timeslots. For example, would like to fill our open slot for the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 10 am to 1 pm? If so, please call Carol or Reggie at 985-5124.
Library Closed for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah: The Library will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 28, and Friday, Nov. 29, so that the staff may enjoy the holidays. Be sure to check out the books and DVDs you may need for the holiday weekend in advance.
Coming in December:
Join us on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 3 pm for the third in our series of themed teas. In December, we will be discussing Agatha Christie’s famous sleuth, Miss Marple. Feel free to bring your knitting: Jane Marple would! RSVPs are greatly appreciated, for how else will we know how much clotted cream to make? If you have yet to meet Miss Marple, please come by the library to check out one of Christie’s titles which feature her as the lead detective or one of the DVDs from the Miss Marple BBC series.
Charlie Browne, the director emeritus of the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury, will give a presentation on “Vermont Birds and Climate Change” in the historic Shelburne Town Hall on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 6:30 pm. Browne will introduce some of the core concepts and predictions for how climate change may shape the future of Vermont bird populations. Free for all ages. Co-sponsored by the Green Mountain Audubon Society.
Join us on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 10:30 am to discuss “Catching Fire”: Book v. Movie. Which version did you prefer? Haven’t read the book yet? Drop by the Pierson Library to pick up a copy; we have several on hand.
