Hey Baby, You’re invited!

The Library and the Richmond Playgroup are hosting our annual Baby Brunch to celebrate the arrival of Richmond’s youngest library patrons.  All children born or adopted into Richmond families in 2017 are invited and encouraged to join us for refreshments and playtime.  This event is an opportunity for families to meet, and for babies to meet their future classmates.  Parents can select a special library book to dedicate to their child.  Invitations were mailed to households, but if you have a new baby and we missed you, please know that you are invited. Call or email the library to RSVP. (434-3036/

Song of the Vikings: The Making of Norse Myths

Song-of-the-VikingsSunday, March 18
3:00 pm
RFL Community Room

Like Greek mythology, Norse myths are still with us, inspiring storytellers from Tolkien to Neil Gaiman, Michael Chabon, and A.S. Byatt. Surprisingly, most of what we know about Valhalla and the Valkyries, Odin and the Well of Wisdom, the Mighty Thor, and Ragnarok or the Twilight of the Gods was written by a 13th-century Icelandic chieftain, Snorri Sturluson. Award-winning author Nancy Marie Brown brings the fascinating story of Sturluson’s life into focus, drawing on newly available sources and illuminating the folklore and pagan legends of medieval Scandinavia.

This is a Vermont Humanities Council event hosted by Richmond Free Library. Free, accessible to people with disabilities, and open to the public. Contact the library at or 434-3036 for more information.
