Art Exhibit – The Year of the Bird – 2018

It is the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA)—a pivotal piece of legislation that continues to save countless bird lives—but birds are also facing many new and serious threats, including attacks on the MBTA itself. What exactly is Year of the Bird? Good question! Throughout the year more than 150 participating organizations are celebrating birds across all of our channels—magazines, television, social media, organizations, institutions and more. To make The Year of the Bird a true success the National Audubon Society is asking people to take simple actions each and every month that will help birds. Simply searching “2018 Year of the Bird” will clue you in on what’s happening with dozens of suggested activities for all ages as well as meaningful initiatives to enhance your property for the well being of birds. Huntington is fortunate to have two outstanding “bird venues” – The Birds of Vermont Museum and Audubon Vermont. The Library will celebrate this anniversary with an art exhibit and of course, we will highlight the many wonderful bird stories and books in the collection. Here are the details – the art work will be:

1) Related to birds.

2) Of any media that can be hung. We don’t have horizontal exhibit space.

3) Created by a Huntington resident of any age.

4) Exhibit ready. There are two framed bulletin boards for work that is not framed.

5) Accepted as soon as you read this notice.

6) Possibly exhibited until the end of 2018.

7) Your choice to sell with a percentage donated to HPL for the Books Fund.

One piece of art work per person, until the space is filled. Questions? Call 434-4583 or email, hpl@gmavt.net.

Substitutes and Volunteers
 Please consider donating your time to keep the library open! We are in need of a pool of volunteers to keep the library open on Sundays for shifts of 2 ½ hours to 5 hours. We also need substitutes for open weekday hours. Training is provided. Please contact the library for more information.

The Huntington Music Box 

Hear something new, share something old. Good music like a good book feels like it should be shared and enjoyed by as many people as can get their “ears” on it. Valley Stage Productions has had the good fortune to hear and witness a lot of music from the concerts we’ve been able to attend and produce as well as conferences of musicians and just normal acquisition of CDs and LPs throughout the years.

There is a box of CDs that Valley Stage will “initiate” on the table as you enter the Huntington Library that you are free to take, borrow or add to. Take what you like, listen to it for as long as you like and share! We’d also suggest that musicians contribute their work to the collection. Exposure to your compositions could result in people attending a performance of yours in the future or perhaps an acknowledgement of your talent the next time you stop into Beaudry’s or cross paths at a Huntington function.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact Don Sheldon;
