This sweet child is looking forward to riding the Onion River Century Ride on her own some day. In the meantime she's joining her mother as co-pilot!
Now is the time to register for the 12th Annual Onion River Century Ride! We have three ride, two old favorites and one new ride. Our new option is a 40 mile ride which goes out Rt 12 from Montpelier to Lake Elmore and back. Registration, raffle and pledges will help the library promote children's literacy. Please join us in this effort to inspire the love of reading and writing with our youngest patrons!
The Library is having a Squash Growing contest for adults and kids! To enter buy a beautiful "Kellogg" Hubbard Squash seedling (aka Blue Hubbard Squash), for $5 and plant it to grow the biggest squash you can. Take photos of your growing squash plant and post the photos on the KHL facebook page and yours, too. StoryTime on Friday, May 29 will honor big squash, in this case pumpkin! Do you know the book, The Biggest Pumpkin Ever by Steven Kroll or Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman? We’re sure you’ll enjoy our “Big Squash” books as Nicole reads them to you. We also want your squash stories and poems! And why not throw in a squash recipe while you're at it. Judging happens in October. Will you be the grand prize winner? A special thanks goes to Sylvana Farm in East Montpelier for growing and donating the squash seedlings.
(Pssst! You can also just buy a squash to support the Library and skip the contest.)
