ROSIE'S MOM: Forgotten Women of the First World War
Saturday, April 9th at 2:00
at the Lanpher Memorial Library
On hundred years ago, a full generation before Rosie the Riveter, women rolled up their sleeves and entered war industries where they had never been welcome before. They ran powerful machinery, learned new skills, and faced the sullen hostility of the men in the shops. In this illustrated lecture, historian Carrie Brown reveals their courage and their hard work, and explores how these women helped shape the work that their more famous daughters would do in the next World War.
Carrie Brown earned a PhD from the University of Virginia, specializing in connections between American literature and folklore. She soon shifted her interest to the broader field of American Studies--working on a wide range of topics, from the history of aviation, to the rich culture of New England towns, to the work of men, women, and children in American factories. She has been a museum curator and exhibit developer for more than 25 years and is the author of books, magazine articles and exhibition catalogues.

It was filmed in 1988 AND Bernie Sanders (then Mayor of Burlington) makes a cameo appearance in the film.

This gentle comedy drama explores aspects of love and relationships by featuring two parallel tales, both occurring in the same Vermont town. In one, the boredom faced by a married pair of high-school sweethearts leads to the destruction of their marriage. At the same time, their closest friend finally finds the love of his life. Author: Sandra Brennan

These electric sewing projects were created by 6th grade students and merge fine craftsmanship with electrical engineering, using conductive thread, button batteries and sewable LED lights.
They are super cool in person. Stop by if you can!
The Lanpher Library, along with other Libraries in Lamoille County, collect food for the Lamoille Community Food Share.
If you are interested, you can donate non-perishable food items at any time in our collection box.
There is also an option of picking up a "Green Bag" and collecting items over a period of time, then dropping the bag off at the Library and swapping it out for an empty bag to collect more. The "Green Bags" are collected on the second Saturday of every even month.
Many "Green Bag" participants purchase one extra item/week when they do their regular grocery shopping. By the end of 8 weeks, they have at least 8 items as a donation in their bags for the Food Share.
