Library Catalog is now viewable online at ghlib.kohavt.org

Lots of great reading weather these days...and with mud season on the horizon, more reading days in the future.   Books are available now for the first of our spring book discussion series.  The title is Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson and the discussion takes place Wednesday March 12 at 3:30 p.m.  We have new titles to choose from in lots of genres, including non-fiction.  Historical fiction has also been popular these days and of course with new releases from Patterson, Evanovich, and more our checkouts stay steady.  As always, if you make your requests known the library will try to deliver. Come join us for another workshop on how to search the catalog from home, check your account and renew books, download audios, and more.  Wendy will present this information on Thursday March 20 at 1:30 p.m., and again in April and May so if you miss this month watch for other dates.    

We've also received a VT READS award and so copies of the book Wonder will be available this month with several events planned for April.  The friends have been showing movies and travel videos and that continues this month as well.  And it's not too early to think of our poetry tree, which will blossom in April.  If you have a favorite poem to post on the tree this year, see Wendy for the details.

Hart Lines      By the Friends of Gilbert Hart Library

We have been watching movies and DVDs about sunny places, which is a great antidote to our winter which is often sunny, but just as often very cold and very snowy. It seems like the winter that wont quit!  

And thats all the more reason for showing movies and scheduling other events, so well have something to look forward to.  

Rug-braiding will continue on Saturday 8th from 9-12 a.m. The Friends Meeting will be on March 12 and again a lunch meeting (bring your own bag lunch) ending at 3:00. Im happy to say we had 4 new Friends at our February meeting who were enthusiastic participants in discussions and decisions.  

At 3:00, a book discussion on Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson will be held in the Klock Room. Books are available at the check-out desk.  

On March 26, a Wednesday, Kathy and Karl Ross will show us slides from their recent trip to Australia and New Zealand . This is at 1:30. A movie may be shown also.  

Our next fund-raiser will be the Plant Sale on May 17th, which is a Saturday, and will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. Last year we offered samples of food using herbs; we plan to do that again, as well as offer books on gardening and cooking.  

That takes us through the month of March, when we also will see the time change to Daylight Saving on March 9th and the first day of Spring on March 20th.  

Dont forget! There are still books for sale in the Klock Room which can be had very cheaply a good way to get you through the rest of the winter.
