Don’t miss all the fun events planned for the library during September

Author Kathryn Holzman will discuss her newly published novel, “Flatlanders,” on Tuesday, September 17, at 7 pm. Holzman’s collection of short fiction explores the truce between Vermont’s homesteaders and the second-home owners who coexist in the lush Green Mountains. Whether sharing a blackberry patch with a bear or dropping off garbage at the local transfer station, life in Vermont unites its disparate residents in surprising ways. The author will sign books following this free event.
Special guest Gail Martin has been teaching origami for over 10 years. She will lead participants through simple nature-inspired models, inspiring fun and confidence along the way. Everybody goes home with a handful of colorful origami creations. On Saturday, September 21, the children’s program will take place from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm. Appropriate for children ages 7 years and up (parents welcome). Snacks will be provided. A second program will begin at 1 pm for adults only. These programs are made possible thanks to a grant from the Deerfield Valley Rotary Club.
