Dorset Village Library
The Dorset Village Library invites young adults to a BYOB (Bring Your Own Book) Club event on Thursday, May 17, from 6 to 7 p.m. Young adults in their 20s and 30s are invited to come to this free, informal mixer to meet others in the area, enjoy provided snacks, and talk about your favorite books. (There’s no required reading.) Parents can bring their young children; the playroom on the Library’s second floor will be supervised by library staff while their parents enjoy themselves. The group hopes to get together once a month throughout the year and offer a variety of meet-ups and activities. Ideas for future programming are encouraged.
Join Milla, the Dorset Library’s official pug, as she hosts her first pug party on Saturday, May 19, from 1 to 3 p.m. This exciting spring affair will be held on the lawn at the Dorset Library, weather permitting (give them a call if in doubt). All ages and all well-behaved dogs are welcome to attend this fun-filled event – although a special invite goes out to any pugs and their families.
The highlight of the event will be readings by author Kimalee Wassick, who is well known for her colorful paintings, sculptures, murals and whimsical interiors. She wrote and illustrated a series of ‘Basil and Prune’ books, depicting her granddaughter, Basil, and her pug named Prune. There will be two separate readings. You can also try your creative hand at pug-themed crafts, relax on the lawn, enjoy delicious snacks (mostly for people, but there will probably be some for the dogs, too), maybe win a prize, read about the history of the pug, or test your athletic skills with some yard games. You can also visit with Green Mountain Pug Rescue to learn about the breed and the adoption process.
The Dorset Village Library is located at the corner of Church Street and Route 30 in Dorset Village. Call 802-867-5774 or visit the website at dorsetvillagelibrary.org to learn more.
