Myth-Steries: Stories in the Stars

Time: 7:00 pm
Place: Rockingham Free Public Library, Bellows Falls, VT
Price: Free
Ages: All

Since the earliest times, humans have looked at the skies, watching their slow, steady changes, as well as the wanderings of the planets and the Moon.  But the sky is too far away to touch, or explore.  So people made up stories, or myths.  Sometimes they tried to explain why the stars and the Moon were there.  Sometimes they used the stories to create a system of keeping track of time.  Modern science has answered many - though not all - of the questions, and our calendars and clocks keep track of time. 

However, the stories linger, and we still look up and wonder, "Why?" Mark Breen, Senior Meteorologist at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, VPR’s “Eye on the Sky” weather forecaster, and author of the award-winning children’s book, “The Kid’s Book of Weather Forecasting” will lead you on an exploration of the night sky, its myths, stories, and changes.

American Revolution Art Exhibit

Time: All day
Place: Peterborough Town Library, 2 Concord St., Peterborough, NH

The Peterborough Town Library is pleased to host a “Tribute to the American Revolution” by artist Carolyn Carter in the library’s Art Corner and Showcase during the month of July. Mrs. Carter, of Gardner, Mass., is the library’s Exhibit Coordinator and resident artist. 

“So many of us take our liberties for granted,” she said, “and somehow through my paintings, drawings, research, and seeking out the unsung heroes, I found myself wanting to share my discoveries and adventures with the people and revisit our heroic past. I created a new painting style the ‘Net Technique,’ giving another added dimension to the work.”

Do you have a computer and want to know more about how it works? Are you thinking about getting a computer and want to know more about what you can do with it? Do you want to blog, Facebook, Twitter and are not sure where to begin? Brooks Memorial Library of Brattleboro is pleased to announce a new computer skills training program.

The library will host one-on-one, one hour computer coaching sessions on Mondays, beginning Monday, July 9 through Monday August 13, from 10 AM to 5 PM through a collaboration with Vermont Telephone Company (VTel).

All of the one-on-one trainings are free and open to the public. No prior computer experience is necessary and each site has computers available for people to use. All sessions are one-hour long and tailored to the individual's needs.

“We meet with people who want to learn how to take advantage of all the Internet has to offer,” says VTel Community Broadband Organizer Dan Lucier. “Many folks have not had the chance to develop computer skills and others want to enhance the skills they currently have. We aim to give them this opportunity.”

Trainings are available on Mondays, starting on July 9th. To sign up for a training, please call the VTel Community Broadband Team at (802) 885-9222 or go to to see the summer schedule.
