Tony James Slater, a writer friend of mine (British, currently from Australia), is traveling the States with his lovely wife, Roo, and finding time to share some of his "worldly" adventures, en route! And adventures, albeit full of his endearing clumsiness, is what you'll get. Here's his Amazon site:

​ As a part of a wonderful, international FaceBook Memoir group, local artist Nancy McBride had the privilege to actually meet and spend time with many of these new friends, from several states, here, as well as in Great Britain and France. (A few of them from Massachusetts, and on from VT, may actually be in attendance!)​ Each have been as special and as authentic as she  imagined. Tony will be no exception, although he is more exotic than most. Take time to read a book or two, if you can, or at least a few reviews of his books to get a feel for this fun evening! Bring your friends!
Let us know if you're coming!

Backyard Astronomy: Come in to borrow the library telescope!

Please come on in to check out the library telescope to observe objects from your own backyard using a technique called star-hopping and learn how easy it is to use!

This telescope was donated to the library by John C. Root in memory of his wife, Susan E. Root, and is maintained by Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt a Library Program.
