Bristol is hosting the One World Library Project, a growing collection of personally recommended books, films and other media about world cultures. Nice elaboration of the 2011 summer reading program theme, One World Many Stories.
The Project is located in a special kiosk on the main floor of the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol. In addition to the collection, monthly evening programs are offered around a variety of themes related to world cultures.

Montgomery Town Library did a new (for them) fundraiser last spring selling flower bulbs. The Library made $500, after they split the profits 50/50 with the local gardening company that supplied the bulbs.
Consider a program that parallels the fundraiser: local gardeners talking using bulbs indoors and out. Hey, we could use some spring color and inspiration about now!
A special twist on storytelling for adults is scheduled for Valentine’s Day eve in Grafton. Sounds like a Vermont version of The Moth from NPR.
*Bring Us Your True Love Stories *
Have a love story you’re longing to tell? Or one you’d love to hear? On Sunday, February 13 from 4-5:30 p.m. at the Grafton Public Library, storyteller and author Annie Hawkins and librarian Michelle Dufort are hosting a gathering of stories in celebration of Valentine’s Day.
Please come and tell us your unscripted 5-minute story about a person, place, possession, pet, or anything you deeply love. Or just come and listen. Annie will kick off the fun with her story and then the stage will belong to you.
Please note that “unscripted” means that the text is in your heart, not on a page.
