Moore Free Library Events

Saturday, February 16 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, State Representative Emily Long (Windham-5) will be on hand to listen to constituents. As VT legislators don’t have local offices, this is a great way to meet your elected official without traveling to Montpelier.

Saturday, February 16 at 1:30 PM, the inaugural meeting of the Windham County Beekeepers Club will be held. All are welcome. Come meet other Windham County Beekeepers. Contact Weis Batty Bees for additional information.

Saturday, February 23 from 11:00 AM til noon, Lynne Levine will present the end of winter vacation, all-ages program “Solving Wildlife Mysteries” in which she shares some examples of scat and tracks seen in the snow at this time of year. Want to learn to identify the animals walking and pooping on your land or in the woods? Come to this workshop and find out how! Free and open to the public.

Wednesday, February 27 at 6:00 PM, Emma Hanson from VT Forestry will discuss Modern Wood Heating. What stoves are best? How does wood burn? What are some good strategies for wood heat? What are pellet stoves? All these questions and more will be answered. Hanson featured prominently on the January edition of Brave Little State. There are several rebates currently available in VT for new and efficient wood and pellet stoves. Come and find out more in person. Workshop is sponsored by Windham & Windsor Housing Trust and EfficiencyVT. Free and open to the public.

Friday, March 1 12:00 PM, the Moore Free Library hosts its book club, which will discuss “Auntie Poldi & the Sicilian Lions.” Contact Deb Barry for more information.

Friday, March 1 at 7:00 PM, Alvino E. Fantini, Ph.D., Director, World Learning Institutional Archives will discuss “World Learning, A Vermont Institution with a Global Impact: Past, Present & Future” World Learning, originally known as The Experiment in International Living (an student exchange organization) and the School for International Training (its academic division), reviewing their history and development over 85+ years, and their impact on the area and around the globe. Fantini’s presentation will be rich with historical photos detailing this exceptional institution. Free and open to the public.

If you’re looking for story ideas, the World Ed presentation is going to be really special and an in-depth article about it would be awesome. Alvino is a wonderful historian and engaging speaker, so we’d love to draw folks in for that one!
