Fall Programs and Books

As summer winds down and a new season fast approaches, we look forward to a great range of upcoming programs and events hosted by the library. Our Open Mic Nights return on second Fridays 7-9pm beginning September 11th at the Moretown Town Hall, this is your chance to share your hidden talents or cheer on your friends and neighbors as part of the audience. In partnership with Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) we are hosting a Simple Supper at the Town Hall on Sunday, September 22nd at 4pm. We will prepare and then enjoy a simple, seasonal meal together with local ingredients. Visit our website for more details and the link for ingredient sign-up. At the end of September, we welcome Jordan Streeter for a four week series of tabletop Role Playing Games (RPG). Beginning with the Tiny D6 system, Jordan will introduce players to the basics of game play as well as character development and certain rule aspects.

The MRV Libraries are also excited to participate in Lawson’s Finest Liquids “no tip” charitable program until August 31st. Any donations received from guests at Lawson’s taproom will go to our Friend’s of the Library organizations, and will help support a wide range of services provided by the libraries like summer learning, improved technology and access for all, building up a ‘library of things’ collection and guest speakers and events.

A good mystery/thriller can be a great way to finish out your summer reading. A recent addition to our collection,  “The Other Mrs. Miller” by Allison Dickson is a domestic thriller with an unpredictable plot and unreliable narrator. The story is sure to appeal to fans of “Gone Girl”  or “Girl on the Train”. And, arriving on August 27th is the highly anticipated newest novel in the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. “A Better Man” follows the inspector returning as head of the homicide department as flood waters rise across the province and a father pleads for help finding his daughter. See you at the library soon!
