Summer fun at the Library is here!

Fun Ways to Record Seasonal Changes on Your Property Thursday, August 24, 6:30pm – 8:30pm. A journaling workshop co-sponsored by VT Coverts and the Huntington Public Library. Please note that this workshop will take place at the Birds of Vermont Museum on Sherman Hollow Road.

In the tradition of British garden journals, the journals of Henry David Thoreau, the Voyage of Discovery and other property record keepers, come enjoy a little time outdoors learning specific ways to record data on your own property that can help you in future land planning and management as well as simply enjoying your natural environs. Join naturalist/artist/educator Clare Walker Leslie to explore journaling. Pre-registration is appreciated, but not required. To register contact Lisa Sausville at 877-2777, or lisa@vtcoverts.org or Anne or Stacey at 434-4583 or hpl@gmavt.net.

Participants should bring a pencil, notebook, binoculars, water bottle, bug spray, and a few field guides if you have them.

Donations are welcome.

The Huntington Public Library has three of Clare Walker Leslie’s books to help you prepare: Keeping a Nature Journal, The Curious Nature Guide, and Drawn to Nature.

Build a Better World Raffle Do you know someone who helps “Build a Better World” by doing good things? This person may be an adult or a child. Come in to the Library, write that good deed on a raffle ticket (you do not have to say who did the good deed, unless you want to!) then write your name to enter the raffle. At the end of the summer we will put all the entries together to build a “building of good things!”

Thanks to our special friends at Radiate Art Space who have generously donated a series of classes (up to $60 worth of class time) to one lucky winner. Drawing will be held on Friday, September 4.

Hatha Yoga Class

Wednesdays in August from 5:30 pm -6:30 pm

Celebrate Hump Day with a slow, but empowering yoga class suitable for all levels of experience. We will focus on alignment of postures, while being mindful of body, breath, and mind. The practice of yoga is the perfect way to reset yourself in the season of renewal! Classes will be taught by Huntington resident Tania Dornic O’Neal. Tania is a certified and registered yoga teacher, who received her 200 HR RYT training in April 2015. She has taught classes locally at Balance Yoga Studio in Richmond, as well as at the Lund Family Center in Burlington through Sangha Studio’s yoga service program. Classes are $10 each, with $1 of that fee for the Huntington Public Library. While classes are drop-in, it would be helpful to know ahead of time how many plan to attend. You can contact Tania with any questions, or to let her know you are coming, at 802-355-4013 (call or text).
