Ongoing Program Information

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Awareness Week  

Emerald Ash Borer in Vermont
Emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive forest pest, has been confirmed in Vermont.
EAB is a major threat to our trees and forests. The emerald ash borer has feasted on over 100 million ash trees in the Midwest, where it was first discovered in 2002. Unless treated with insecticides, most infested trees die within 3 to 5 years. Experience in Michigan and other states has shown that once this pest is detected in an area, more detections follow quickly — and the ash trees die rapidly over a few short years. EAB was confirmed in Vermont and 2018 and there are currently confirmed infestations in five Vermont counties.

  • Film Showing: "My Father's Vietnam" @ Charlotte Grange Hall
    7:00 pm-9:00 pm

    A personal documentary about a public subject, "My Father's Vietnam" personifies the connections made and unmade by the Vietnam War. Featuring never-before-seen photographs and 8mm footage of the era, "My Father's Vietnam" is the story of three soldiers, only one of whom returned home alive. Interviews with the filmmaker's Vietnam Veteran father, and the friends and family members of two men he served with who were killed there, give voice to individuals who continue to silently carry the psychological burdens of a war that ended over 40 years ago. "My Father's Vietnam" carries with it the potential to encourage audiences to broach the subjects of service and sacrifice with the veterans in their lives. Co-sponsored with the Charlotte Grange

  • Great Decisions: Decoding US-China Trade
    7:00 pm-8:30 pm

    Join us for a discussion of this timely topic. Reading materials available at the Charlotte Library circulation desk.

    Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade. These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s. Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China. What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices? There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.
