Of Note:
     A proposed Vermont state constitutional amendment protecting the "personal reproductive liberty" of all Vermonters was approved by the Vermont House on Tuesday. The measure, known as Proposition 5, will now be decided by voters in a statewide referendum in November. The vote on the proposed amendment was 107 to 41. We, along with so many other Vermonters, extend a hearty THANK YOU to Vermont’s reproductive rights activists, those in legislature who have worked tirelessly, and to our neighbors and community members, who made this achievement possible.

Outside Windham County: Online from Rockingham Library
Interpreting Historical Landscapes in the Upper Connecticut River Valley
hosted by the Rockingham Historic Preservation Commission and the Rockingham Free Public Library, and made possible through a grant from the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation and the National Park Service
Wednesday, February 16th, 2022, Online. 7pm.

To receive an invitation to join this live ZOOM presentation, contact [email protected] or call the library at 802-463-4270. Free and open to the public. 
Archaeologist Gail Golec will discuss historic resources and archaeological sites in the Upper Connecticut River Valley over Rockingham Library ZOOM. 
Often these resources and sites are looked upon as isolated finds, rather than part of a wider community with a shared history. Learning to view geographical landscapes, natural resources and historical events as interconnected creates a more accurate understanding of our culture and times and better informs us how to preserve and interpret these resources.
Gail Golec has been a professional archaeologist for over 20 years, working on site primarily in New Hampshire and Vermont. Born and raised in the area, Golec has undertaken extensive research projects focusing on the Contact Period/Early Colonial Settlement, 18th and 19th century cemeteries and documenting the lives of Indigenous and African American community members of the Greater Falls and Monadnock Region. Golec teaches classes on these topics, gives community lectures and writes and produces a podcast about historic cemeteries called "The Secret Life of Death".

hosted by 350 Brattleboro

Admission by donation.
This screening is the first in a series of climate change films hosted by 350 Brattleboro. “The Reluctant Radical” follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. Ken breaks the law as a last resort, to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations. After twenty years leading environmental organizations, Ken became increasingly alarmed by both the scientific evidence of climate change and the repercussions for civilization as we know it. Ken pushed for a crisis level response from inside environmental organizations. Those efforts failed, and he now embraces direct action civil disobedience as the most effective political tool to deal with catastrophic circumstances. At the conclusion of the showing, Ken Ward, the subject of the film will be available via zoom to answer questions and discuss his experience.
