"IF YOUR MOTHER SAYS SHE LOVES YOU, CHECK IT OUT" : Getting Real in the age of Fake News on Wednesday, March 22nd, 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Lanpher Memorial Library. Join Johnson State College professor, Tyrone Shaw for a conversation about finding reliable news in an environment awash with manipulation, propaganda and outright fakery.
Stacey Wein, the Copley Hospital Health Sciences Librarian, has put together a display to educate the public about United States Pharmacopeial (USP) Pictograms. USP Pictograms are standardized graphic images that help convey medication instructions, precautions, and/or warnings to patients and consumers.
This display will be at the Lanpher Library for the next few weeks.
Pictograms help by using simple images that are particularly helpful in passing on important information to patients. They make it easier to understand directions of prescriptions, avoiding errors, resulting in safe and effective drug use.
Please stop by the Lanpher Library to take a look at the display and pick up a handout of the most common USP Pictograms along with their definitions.
Tax Booklets and Forms are no longer sent out to Libraries and Post Offices as they have been in the past. At the Lanpher Library, we DO have a few copies of the more common instruction booklets and forms...while supplies last.
We have catalogued the 1040 A , 1040 EZ and the Vermont Instruction Booklet so that patrons can check out for a week and return for others to use...just like any other Library materials.
You can also print out copies of Federal forms and instruction booklets from irs.gov
and Vermont forms at www.bit.ly/vttaxforms
Other ways to order VT forms or a Vermont Income Tax Instruction Booklet:
When ordering, please include: Your name, Mailing Address, Form number/form name/Instruction Booklet, Daytime phone number
If you would like your own Federal Income Tax Instruction Booklet and you do not want to print it out, you can order it online to be delivered to you by U.S. Mail by filling out an online form at: https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/order-products

Peggy Noonan, former Presidential speech writer, Wall Street Journal Columnist and CBS News contributor, offered an opinion piece on CBS Sunday Morning January 15, 2017, about inaugural addresses. (link to the piece below)
In it, she mentioned Abraham Lincoln's second Inaugural Address, given on March 4, 1865, as a "great inaugural masterpiece".
Several years ago, Vermont historian Howard Coffin was doing some research at the Lanpher Library and pointed out a loose insert in our bound copies of the 1865 newspaper. It was Lincoln's second inaugural address printed by the Lamoille Newsdealer. Rather than risk damage or theft, our Trustees had it preserved in an archival frame. It now hangs in the Lanpher Memorial Library outside of the office door for all to see and read.
The Lanpher Memorial Library will be open on Monday, January 16, 2017, 12:00-7:00.
Stop in and discover books, audio books and DVDs written by and about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., for whom this day is set aside to honor and remember.
Night Owl Story Time takes place at 6:00 p.m. and our monthly Junior Naturalist Program will present: Snow Secrets: Do YOU know the secret of snow? How does a snowflake form and is every snowflake really different? How can snow keep things warm? Snowflake collection, observations, snow melting experiments and snow detective scavenger hunt are some of the activities to look forward to during this free program sponsored by LVVS. Thank you!
In our Centennial Year we had much to look back on and celebrate...and much to look forward to!
Please enjoy the slide show of the entries in our 100 Themed Community Art Exhibit.
