Orwell news for May 2

ORWELL — The Orwell Free Library will host several events during the month of May. First on the docket is an update on the Galick Site Excavation on Wednesday, May 15, at 7 p.m. at the library. Members of the South Champlain Historical Ecology Project will be on hand to talk about their project, started in 2016, to investigate long-term human-environmental interactions around the southern end of Lake Champlain.
Over the past three summers, excavations have helped researchers learn more about life at a pre-contact campsite and historical farmstead first occupied more than 11,000 years ago. Come and learn more about the project, including work done with local elementary school students and the new 3D scanning initiative. The project is looking for volunteers to help again this summer. 
The Library’s annual plant, book and bake sale is set for Saturday, May 25, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Plants of all kinds — annuals, perennials, houseplants, herbs, vegetables, shrubs, container gardens, and hanging baskets — will be for sale, as well as books, DVDs, home baked and canned goods, soups, and breads. All proceeds go directly to the Orwell Free Library for purchasing books, providing programming, updating technology and serving the Orwell community.
