Dorothy Alling Memorial Library, your home for lifelong learning
Library Logo Contest!
The Dorothy Alling Memorial Library is sponsoring a contest to update the library logo. The current logo depicts the original brick building atop an open book. Since that logo was created, there have been two additions to the library building and the library now offers much more than just print materials. All entries must be submitted by 6 p.m. EST on Friday, May 29, 2015. Entrants must live, work, or attend school in Chittenden County, Vermont. All submitted work must e original. Only one entry per person will be accepted. The winner will be announced Friday, June 17, 2015 on the library website.
The winner will be awarded a $50 gift certificate to Artist's Medium in Williston, Vermont and a Keurig "Mr. Coffee" Single Cup Brewing System.
A local specialist will hold free, non-judging, group sessions to help you quit the habit. This free program is open to all. Pre-registration is required. Fridays through April 3, 12-1pm.
Music Performer Needed!
The Dorothy Alling Memorial Library (Williston) is looking for a musical performer for children. The person would have "high energy" for a group of preschool children ranging from babes-in-arms to 5 years old. The group attending has been as small as 6 and as large as 85 with parents, but averages around 20-30. The "gig' would be weekly, Thursday late mornings for 30 minutes for $45. We have an established time of 10:30 am - 11 am, but we could adjust a little as long as it falls between 10:15 am and noon. The repertoire could include "classic" kids' songs and original music.
Center for Cartoon Studies Scholarship
Since 2009, the Center for Cartoon Studies has donated a full scholarship to the Vermont Department of Libraries so that a Vermont teen may attend their one week "Create Comics" summer workshop.
Students interested in the scholarship should apply through their local school or public library. Submissions are due by May 4, 2015. For more information click here.
