LIBRARY NEWS for the TIMES OF SHREWSBURY, JULY 2018
We’re very pleased to announce that the Board of Trustees has elected RILEY MILLER to be our new Student Trustee! RILEY is a great reader and entering 7th grader; the Library will benefit from his ideas and enthusiasm.
MANY THANKS to ELSA TIROU for her excellent presentation on May 25th. Elsa has been a Rotary Exchange Student for the past year, studying at Mill River and living with Rotary families in Wallingford and Shrewsbury. Elsa spoke about her native Belgium to a large and appreciative audience.
MANY THANKS to YVONNE DALEY for reading from her new book, Going Up the Country: When the Hippies, Freaks, and Radicals Moved to Vermont on June 16th. Yvonne brings her journalistic talents and her poet’s heart to this important social history of the 1960‘s – 70‘s movement that changed this state. The book should be available at the library by the time you read this; you can find many residents and some history of the town itself in these pages!
