Micro-Drones Demo and Race in the Library!
Presented by Northern New England Drone User Group

On June 18 the Northern New England Drone User Group will talk about drone technology and share experiences flying them. Some group members will also race their nano drones between the stacks inside the library. The Northern New England Drone User Group (NNE DUG) is an organization for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of flying robots for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. "Our members are very passionate about drones and teaching safe and respectful usage" says group member Steve Mermelstein. Join us!

Animal Athletes: Live Animals in the Library!
Presented by Michael Clough of the Southern Vt. Natural History Museum

This interactive program will look at the amazing physical feats some of our local wildlife are able to perform. We will then compare our own abilities to see if we have what it takes to be an animal athlete! Can we jump as high as a deer? Can we run as fast as a coyote? Artifacts, live animals and more will help us explore these amazing abilities and compare them to the incredible qualities of the human animal as well! Be ready to move and run for this program!

Reception for the Artists
Saturday, June 18th, 4-6pm

The exhibit features art work by VLS students, alumni, staff, and spouses. The work displayed includes a variety of media such as ink drawing, painting, photography, illustration, and quilting.

Building the Next Chapter, short film screening

Join us for a "first screening" of a video created by the South Royalton School Multimedia Squad class about the library renovation project! The video features interviews with library patrons about why they love the library and why they support the campaign to make the library accessible to all.

The video was created by SoRo School seniors Amelia Fisk, Brittani Frary, Olivia Gauthier and Rachel Moore as part of the Multimedia Squad course taught by school librarian Katherine Lucia.
DCF Books are in the library!
The library welcomes the addition of 30 Dorothy Canfield Fisher books on loan for the summer from the library at the South Royalton School. The DCF award, also called "Dorothy's List," was created to honor excellence in children's literature. Since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of 30 nominees. Come borrow, read, and be ready to vote on your favorite book for the 2016-2017 year!
