Become a citizen scientist at the Charlotte Library
What can your family do together to benefit the environment locally and globally?
Become citizen scientists!
Study Lake Champlain, become Cloud Observers for NASA, find a map of the night sky in your backyard, or observe South America’s total solar eclipse in December.
Stop at the Charlotte Library and visit the display table for ideas and books like the Watershed Explorer Challenge booklet designed for young people to learn about watershed science and the Lake Champlain Basin.
You can also visit the Charlotte Library website for links to other exciting opportunities at charlottepubliclibrary.org.
Hygge season is here
The Charlotte Library is celebrating hygge season during November.
Hygge is “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.”
Consistent with the hygge theme the library is holding a Get Cozy Raffle for a comfy quilt made by Amanda Herzberger.
Also being raffled is coffee from Paradiso, cocoa and chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates, tea, beeswax candles and an assortment of great books.
Tickets are $5 apiece or five for $20.
