VT Reads 2016–Kickoff

Join us on Tuesday, September 13th @ 6:30 p.m. at the Enosburgh Public Library, for the kickoff event for the Vermont Reads 2016–The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition by Caroline Alexander and Shipwreck at the Bottom of the World by Jennifer Armstrong. 

The Enosburgh Public Library, in cooperation with The Enosburg Opera House and the Enosburgh Historical Society are pleased to offer programs during the months of September, October and November about these books.  Come on in at that time and sample a warm drink to ward off hypothermia, learn what food you need to combat scurvy, check out a display of books about the Antarctic, watch a brief film clip of the expedition, and pick up your free copy of the book (made available from the Vermont Humanities Council).  We will be holding our Reading and Discussion on these great books on October 18th.  2016 will be the hundredth anniversary year of the climactic and dramatic conclusion of the Endurance expedition (1914-1916).

Reptile Love

Reptile Love will be at the Enosburgh Public Library on Thursday, July 28th from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Come learn about and see a Leopard Gecko, Crested Gecko, Chinese Water Dragon, bearded Dragon, Tortoise, Pastel and Pinstripe Pythons, and a Cornsnake.  You will learn about the different ways the reptiles shed and have the opportunity to explore hands-on the different sheds.  What do the reptiles need to grow?  We will also have the opportunity for those who would like to–to actually hold their favorite reptile of the day!

Stay after the program as we have our Summer Reading Program Celebration–we will have a picnic, and find out which group won the Paperclip Reading Challenge (will it be the kids or the adults?)!!

Ada of Enosburg

On July 25th, 2016 from 2:00-4:00 p.m., Deb Massey will do a brief presentation, Ada of Enosburg, written by her mother, Cynthia Wriston Massey at the Enosburgh Public Library. The story is about Ada Tyler who was Cynthia’s grandmother and the life and times of that era. Signed copies of the book will be available for those who would like one, and refreshments will be available.


Cynthia Massey charts with a deft hand the social and psychological hills and valleys of
lives along the course of the Missisquoi River in Franklin County, Vermont. Fortunately letters have been saved for generations, making it possible to put together the essence of her familys lives and fortunes. The Northwest Kingdom of Vermont is the author's moniker for colorful and vibrant times in a developing territory. Ada of Enosburg is far more than a memoir. Imaginary vignettes of "a day in the life of" create fascinating epochs for all readers. Events become vivid through descriptive language, intimate comments and family photographs. You will feel that you have been sugaring, you have gone on winter picnics, you wore the clothing of the time, rode excursion trains and experienced old-time remedies. Step into nearly 100 years of the Northwest Kingdom of Vermont.—Provided from the back cover of the book.
