Brownell Library News

Come to Brownell Library on Friday, March 10, from 4-5 to eat pizza and volunteer your time with the Teen Advisory Group to make the library a better place! This month, preparations are underway for our teens-only open mic happening this April. Teens who came last month chose some fun assignments to have ready and will spend time working on them at this meeting; if you weren't there then, still come and you'll get a chance to weigh in on the set-up, decorations, food -- as well as make some important decisions about our April meeting! Come make this event the most fun possible, and spread the word about the opportunity for teens to perform and watch a live performance.

Vermont Youth Dancers

Vermont Youth Dancers presents their own retelling of the classic legend of Robin Hood, In The Woods Somewhere, Robyn Hood's Gang of Thieves, April 1 and 2 at Essex High School. After her lands are taken, Robyn of Locksley forms a band of rebels to help those in need. Will the Sheriff of Nottingham catch them, and what price must be paid in order for Robyn to save her friends? This full length theatre production is told through dance to current music with imaginative sets and beautiful costumes, where the chosen music, acting, and unexpected blend of hip hop and lyrical choreography tell the story. With this performance, VYD is offering partial proceeds to and honoring the work of Wood4Good and Aunt Dot's Place Food Shelf. Tickets for April 1 at 1:30 and 6:30, and April 2 at 1:30 are available at Don't miss it!
