Polish potluck and ‘Life in A Jar’ film screening

Irena Sendler rescued 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland during the Nazi occupation in WWII. Her name and deeds were mostly unsung in America until a group of Kansas teens found out about her story and made a play about it. Jack Mayer, a local doctor and writer, wrote a book (Also called ‘Life in a Jar’) about Irena and also about the teens who wrote about her. We discussed the book last year. This year, in honor of Yom HaShoah--the Jewish day of remembrance of the Holocaust, we will gather to eat a meal of Polish food together and then watch a screening of the DVD that shows the play the teens created.

And don't forget about the tree lighting that happens right after: we will have the horse drawn hay wagon come pick people up from the library to get to the tree lighting at 5.

We have a parking lot in the back!

Go Solar! December 1 at 6 PM

On Thursday December 1st, join us at the Salisbury Library for an informational session on the new Solar Addison County program. Solar Addison County is finally making it easy and affordable for homeowners and businesses all across Addison County to heat their water with the sun, by helping neighbors go solar, together. Through this program, heating your water with the sun costs the same as heating it with fuel oil or propane, and can even save you money from the start. For all of us who have ever wanted clean, renewable energy, that's made in Vermont, this is a great opportunity.

If you'd like to learn more about how solar hot water technology works, the costs and finances of solar hot water, and see if this could work for you, please join the Salisbury Free Public Library and VPIRG for a public info session on Thursday Dec. 1st. Here are the details:
