Monkton news for Jun. 1

MONKTON — Did you know that the Russell Memorial Library has passes for area museums and more to get a discount on admission?  Passes for the Shelburne Museum, Birds of Vermont and Echo are now available, plus Vermont State Park and Vermont Historic passes will be available soon.

Some passes are buy-one-get-one-free, other admit one free, while the State Park will admit free a carload of eight people for the day. These passes are to be loaned just for one day and should be returned to the library soon after so that other residents may enjoy them also. This is such a generous way for residents and families to enjoy activities that they may not be able to otherwise. Stop in at the library, get a pass and see what else is happening at the library. Hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m.; also Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call the library at 802-453-4471 for more information. If no answer, leave your name, phone number with a brief message and someone will get back to you. Most public libraries in Vermont carry these passes for their residents. If you are from a different town, stop in at your local library to check to see what they have.

There are still two (2) openings left for the Simple Mushroom Cultivation class with Monkton Herbalist Julie Mitchell. The class will be held on June 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the library. The cost is $18 to attend. Call 802-453-4471 or email [email protected] to reserve a spot.

Coming at the end of June (the 25th) is the library’s annual Strawberry Festival and Book Sale. Watch for more details as the date draws closer.
