Free Parenting Program
Using Picture Books to Support the Emotional and Social Development of Your Child.

Understanding emotions is a critical part of children's overall development. Please join Amy Olsen, (Vermont Early Literacy Initiative trained Librarian) and Marie Olsen, Licensed Mental Health Practitioner and Registered Play Therapist; to learn how children's literature can support your child's social and emotional development.
Participants will receive free books.
Please register as space is limited. Call Marie Olsen: 802-917-3183 or Lanpher Library 802-888-4628

THE IMPORTANCE OF HISTORY IN PROMOTING TOLERANCE AND RESPECT
We are proud to be carrying forward the important lessons learned from the Holocaust with this program. Knowledge is the most important tool in the fight against ignorance, intolerance and fear. By sharing stories of survival and teaching their invaluable lessons, the Vermont Holocaust Memorial envisions a time when prejudice, bigotry and hate are replaced by respect for all.
Speakers, Miriam Rosenbloom and Debora Steinerman will also talk about the VTHM's "Leaf Project", by using the analogy of a tree, will help us understand the enormity of 1.5 million children killed during the Holocaust.
This program is Free and open to the General Public.
