Anno 2010 Begins @ Your Library

On behalf of the staff, library volunteers, and Board of Trustees, we wish you a happy, healthy, and book-filled New Year. If your resolution is to read more good books, the library can help you meet your goal.

Below are some of the events you can attend at the Library during the month of January. See you there!



Wednesday, January 6, 7 PM, Main Room, Dartmouth professor and art historian Jane Carroll will consider how political power has been projected through art in a talk in her talk, "Projecting Leadership: Art Used for Political Ends."

Smart rulers have long known that art can create myths more powerful than reality. Carroll will examine such art, from Rome to recent American examples.

Carroll is Adjunct Assistant Professor of History at Dartmouth College, specializing in Medieval and Renaissance art. She is editor with Alison Stewart of Saints, Sinners and Sisters:Gender and Northern Art in Medieval and Early Modern Europe published in 2003. It is a collection of original essays, which showcases the diverse questions currently being asked by gender scholars dealing with Netherlandish and German art from the medieval and early modern periods.

The Vermont Humanities Council's First Wednesdays series is held on the first Wednesday of every month from October through May, featuring speakers of national and regional renown. Talks are held at Brooks Memorial Library.

For more information, contact us at 802.254.5290 or contact the Vermont Humanities Council at 802.262.2626 or info@vermonthumanities.org, or visit www.vermonthumanities.org.


Media Mentoring Project:

Writing Poetry.

On Wednesday, January 13 , 5-6:30PM, in the Brooks Memorial Library meeting room, Clara Rose Thornton will lead a workshop on Writing Poetry.


The innovative InkBlot Complex Poetry Workshop aims to lift poetry from the page and reveal how it is a living force in daily life. Originally taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago to great acclaim, its interactive nature and inclusion of multiple artforms leaves dry, academic notions of poetry behind.

The InkBlot Complex Poetry Workshop is taught by internationally published arts journalist, cultural critic and poet Clara Rose Thornton.


Open to the public- no previous experience or class attendance is required. Participants are invited to bring a project and an open mind.


For more information about the Media Mentoring Project or to register, please contact Betsy Arney at her email or (802) 246-6397.


Telling it Like it Is:

The Underground Railroad at the Rokeby Museum.

On Saturday, January 16, 2:00 PM, in the Brooks Memorial Library meeting room, Rokeby Museum director Jane Williams will speak on, Telling it Like it Is: The Underground Railroad at the Rokeby Museum.

Williams will describe how our understanding of the Underground Railroad at Rokeby evolved - from the stories told by the third and fourth generations of the family to the history discovered when family letters were studied for the first time. CD recordings of abolitionist speeches will also be played.

Located in Ferrisburgh, Vermont, the Rokeby Museum is one of the best-documented Underground Railroad sites in the country. It was designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service in recognition of its outstanding history in 1997.

Rowland Thomas and Rachel Gilpin Robinson were devout Quakers and radical abolitionists, and they harbored many fugitive slaves at their family home and farm during the decades of the 1830s and 1840s. Among the thousands of letters in the family's correspondence collection are several that mention fugitive slaves by name and in some detail.


Travel to Tibet:

Overland from Yunnan to Lhasa: A Slide Presentation


On Wednesday, January 20, at 7 PM, in the library's meeting room, Overland from Yunnan to Lhasa: A Slide Presentation by Gene Parulis.

Join Landmark College professor and photographer Gene Parulis who will take us from Kunming, bustling capital of Yunnan, north and west up into the dizzying gorges of four of Asia's great rivers: the Yangtze, Mekong, Salween and Brahmaputra to Lhasa, Tibet's fabled but troubled capital.

Along the way we'll visit monasteries, high passes, glaciers, sacred lakes, old villages, new towns and cities. The presentation considers people and culture, geography, history, Buddhism, and the crucial role of hydropower in current Chinese-Tibetan affairs.


Conferences That Work:

Creating Events That People Love


On Wednesday, January 27 , at 7 PM, in the library's meeting room, Conferences That Work - a presentation and discussion with local author Adrian Segar


Please join Marlboro author Adrian Segar who will discuss his new book Conferences That Work: Creating Events That People Love. His talk will be of interest to anyone who wants to find out about a better way to bring together a group of people with a common interest to share and learn from each other.

Every year, over a hundred million people go to conferences, spending more than one hundred billion dollars in the process (not including the value of their time.) Despite this massive expenditure of time and money, they experience a traditional conference process that has changed very little since the 17th century.

Segar rarely enjoyed traditional conferences when he was an academic in the 70's and 80's, and has explored alternative conference formats for more than twenty years. Since 1992 he has been organizing peer conferences: small, attendee-driven, structured, highly interactive, safe, reflective, and community-building events that thousands of people have enjoyed.

In his presentation, Segar will explain how peer conferences work and why they are so successful in meeting participants' needs. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Adrian Segar has organized and facilitated conferences for over 20 years.

He is a former elementary particle physicist, information technology consultant, professor of computer science, and co-owner of a solar manufacturing company. He lives with his wife Celia in Marlboro, Vermont, is active in the non-profit world, and loves to sing and dance.

When trying to pile fortune it is usually a sensible belief to start a savings or investing system as soon in life as feasible. But don't fear if you have not thought of saving your money until later on in life. With honest work, that is researching the best investment vehicles for your capital you can slowly but surely increase your wealth so that it measures to a big sum by the period you want to retire. Look at all of the applicable asset classes from stocks to real estate as investments for your money. A well diversified portfolio of investments in various asset classes may make your money enlarge through the years.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
