Environmental Film Series: The Library will be featuring two or three films a year on environmental themes. We are pleased to have Barrett Grimm as the host for this series. Our first film will be “Call of the Forest” by Diana BeresfordKroeger. It will be shown on Sunday, December 9 at the Library. Snacks will be available at 5:15 pm and the film will begin at 5:30. It is an 85 minute feature. You can watch the trailer at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45jwIzO6D60. Ms. Beresford Kroeger has written several highly regarded books that are part of the HPL collection. This series is being sponsored in collaboration with the Huntington Conservation Commission and Vermont Coverts – Woodlands for Wildlife. vtcoverts.org

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;

 802-434-4563 or don@valleystage.net
