Vermont libraries provide community, not just books

In an era when memberships in social clubs and church attendance are down, and critics say social media appears to be fracturing rather than knitting society together, libraries are stepping in as so-called third places where people can meet and socialize.

Screech & Hoot with live birds!

July 31 ~ 10:00am The Vermont Institute of Natural Science presents Screech & Hoot with live birds! ¬†Why do owls hoot? What are those hawks talking about? How do scientists find out what birds are saying? Meet some of these talkative hawks, falcons, and owl up close! We’ll practice identifying raptors by their calls, learn what these vocalizations might mean, and how they are made.

Co-sponsored by the Bradford Public Library and the Bradford Parks and Rec. this free program will be held at the Bradford Elementary School to best accommodate the birds and audience!
