Economic Stimulus Equity Fund

The Vermont Community Foundation is charged with administering a state program which gives direct stimulus payments to people living in Vermont who were left out of the federal program due of their immigration status. If an individual was not able to receive the 2020 federal stimulus because of their immigration status and they meet the criteria described by the legislature (see the FAQ page), they will be eligible for the state funding through this program. The sign-up form is available in English and several other languages spoken in Vermont. Registration ends March 1.

  • Friends Book Discussion: Edith Wharton's "The Custom of the Country"
    7:30 pm-9:00 pm

    Considered by many to be her masterpiece, Edith Wharton's epic work is a scathing yet personal examination of the exploits and follies of the modern upper class. As she unfolds the story of Undine Spragg, from New York to Europe, Wharton affords us a detailed glimpse of what might be called the interior décor of this America and its nouveau riche fringes. Through a heroine who is as vain, spoiled, and selfish as she is irresistibly fascinating, and through a most intricate and satisfying plot that follows Undine's marriages and affairs, she conveys a vision of social behavior that is both supremely informed and supremely disenchanted. - Anita Brookner
    Register in advance.

  • "Guided Autobiography" workshop
    7:00 pm-8:30 pm

    Guided Autobiography offers a facilitated process in which to explore, reflect upon and integrate one’s life story. Useful for adults navigating times of transition in life, or simply as a means to embark on a deeper process of self- discovery, this is a personal journey taken up in the company of supportive comrades. Each week participants will write a two page story on a particular life theme. Through the process of sharing one’s own and responding to others’ stories, participants find a sense of perspective, appreciation for their own strengths, re-discover creative and previously overlooked opportunities, and experience a sense of connection with others. Although sessions include resources or creative tools to explore one’s history, writing skill is not a focus for this group. Limit: 6 participants.

  • Mystery Book Group: "A Beautiful Blue Death"
    10:00 am-11:00 am

    On any given day in London, all Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, wants to do is relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist another chance to unravel a mystery, even if it means trudging through the snow to her townhouse next door. One of Jane's former servants, Prudence Smith, is dead -- an apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder by a rare and deadly poison. The house where the girl worked is full of suspects and, though Prudence dabbled with the hearts of more than a few men, Lenox is baffled by an elusive lack of motive in the girl's death. Copies are available at the circulation desk.

  • Men's Book Group: "The Overstory"
    7:30 pm-9:00 pm

    The Overstory is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of - and paean to - the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.  Print copies available for porch pickup at the library and ebook via Libby.
