What’s New!

October 23rd – Thursday – 5:00 p.m. at Lyndon Town School Library – Cobleigh Communities Read Discussion of Wonder by
R. J. Palacio with Sam Drazin.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live with a facial difference and hearing loss?  Sam was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, a craniofacial anomaly which is similar to that of Auggie, the main character of R. J. Palacio’s Wonder.  Like Auggie, Sam has undergone multiple surgeries and faced the challenges of adolescence while looking a bit different.  Growing up with a facial difference and hearing loss, coupled with his experience as a teacher, Sam will take you on his journey, sharing with you the challenges as well as humor in everyday situations.  Sam believes awareness is essential to support children and adults in becoming more aware and accepting of all differences.  Join us for this eye opening event!  This project is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts as well as the Vermont Humanities Council.  A light supper and refreshments will be served!

The children’s room is closed because of water damage we found on Monday, June 24, 2013.  A limited amount of children’s books are available on the top floor.  If you have a children’s book request, library staff can retrieve it for you–please ask us!  The road needs repair before we can make repairs to the children’s room.  If you have any questions please ask library staff or call the library at 626-5475.
