Summer at the Quechee/Wilder Libraries!

Sunflowers for Summer 2022Kids ages 5-11 are invited to sign reading contracts from June 6-17, spend some time planting sunflowers and other seeds, and creating a sunflower art print.  We’ll be growing those plants and hanging the art, all in support of the Ukraine summer series, supported with a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council.  Complete those contracts and we have some very special prizes to raffle off:  Spend an hour playing the piano, painting, having a chess match, visiting a horse, learning about telescopes and planets, starting a quilt, playing catch. Who can we match YOU with?
