Harmonicas for Health: Build Lung Power While Learning to Play the Harmonica

If you have a song in your heart, then you're ready to learn how to play the harmonica! You don’t need to know how to read music to play this tiny, simple instrument. Once you learn the basics you can explore just about any tune, from classical to country.

Playing the harmonica can help alleviate respiratory issues by building up the muscles that help you breathe more effectively. Bring a harmonica in the key of C and a printout of the class song packet (provided at registration). Don’t have a harmonica? Hohner harmonicas will be available for purchase at class ($6 to $39.95).

Class size is limited and the class runs for three weeks. Please only sign up if you are able to attend all sessions. Free and open to the public.

Fall Book Group: How to Break Up With Your Phone: The 30-Day Plan to Take Back Your Life by Catherine Price

Local media literacy educator and mom, Suzie McCoy, will lead group meetings and discussions on this timely book which is perhaps more aptly titled, How to Have a More Mindful Relationship with Your Phone.

Is your phone the first thing you reach for in the morning and the last thing you touch before bed? Do you frequently pick it up “just to check,” only to look up forty-five minutes later wondering where the time has gone? Do you say you want to spend less time on your phone, but have no idea how to do so without giving it up completely? If so, you're not alone!

We’ll discover how phones and apps are designed to be addictive, and learn how the time we spend on them damages our abilities to focus, think deeply, and form new memories. We’ll then make customized changes to settings, apps, environment, and our mindset that will ultimately enable us to take back control of our lives. Please join us and feel good about your phone!

Please email Jill or call 802-482-2878 to sign up for the group. The library can provide a limited number of books. Sign up early to borrow a copy.

If you are interested in joining this group, please plan to read Part 1: The Wake Up prior to the first meeting. The group meets at 6:30 pm on both October 9th and November 13th.

Film: One Town at a Time

Vermont has 251 towns. Explore them…One Town at a Time.

In 2006, during a summer between semesters at college, director Mike Leonard took on the challenge of visiting every town in the state of Vermont by joining the 251 Club - a unique organization dedicated to exploring The Green Mountain State. With his two best friends in tow, he met with locals and visited some of Vermont’s most celebrated nooks and crannies. After living outside Vermont for over a decade, Mike moved back home and has chosen to revisit the 251 Club – returning to some of the same places and re-interviewing some of the same people he met 12 years ago – to learn about how Vermont has changed, how it has stayed the same, and how a humble wayfarer’s club has shaped his identity forever. 

One Town at a Time is a coming-of-age story that is firmly rooted in the community spirit that makes Vermont’s towns so special, including diverse voices from across the state such as Former Governor Jim Douglas and Ben & Jerry’s co-founder, Jerry Greenfield. You will hear from 251 Club members of all kinds and, after listening to their stories of traveling through Vermont, you’ll want to start exploring as well.

Donations appreciated.
