When Johnson artist, Geoff Corey, asked if he could show some of his paintings at the Lanpher Library again someday, we jumped at the offer and have finally gotten the paintings here on display! Well, some of the paintings....since Geoff last had his work here a year and a half ago, his popularity has soared and he has shown his art in a variety of places throughout Lamoille County.
Geoff taught at Stowe Elementary School for 32 years and upon retiring, looking for a new challenge, found one when his daughter Kim presented him with some paints. He started off with acrylics and then watercolor painting, where he found the challenge he'd been looking for. Of working with watercolors, Geoff says, "The application of watercolor pigment, I discovered, can be very challenging, frustrating, but enjoyable all at the same time."
Geoff credits the support of his wife, Martha, and his three children Kim, Scott and Heather for giving him the optimism and confidence to continue his art experience.
All of Geoff's paintings are for sale and can be purchased by contacting Geoff. Please inquire at the Lanpher Library for his contact information.

Research shows that children who do not read over the summer can lose significant reading progress.

Remember last summer's Summer Reading Program Theme? "Dig Into Reading"!!! Well, maybe we can take that a little bit more literally this week!
Summer is coming. Are you wondering which books your child (5th-8th grade) might like to read? Mrs. Carr's class at Hyde Park Elementary School has written reviews of books they've read and posted them on their class blog. Click the button below to access their reviews. Please take some time to read a few of them...even if you don't intend to check out the titles for yourself or your child. The writing is incredible and their passion for reading is evident. All of the books that have been reviewed are available at the Lanpher Memorial Library.
