Celebrate Dragon Day – Saturday, September 18 at 11 am.

On Saturday, September 18 over 100 libraries across Vermont will be participating in the Great Vermont Dragon Egg Hunt and happily, the Richmond Free Library is among them. Join us on the back lawn at 11 am as we celebrate the mighty beast with dragon stories, dragon songs, magical dragon eggs and a hunt for the Great Dragon Egg! We will be using some excavation tools most suited for kids ages 4 and up.

This event is free but is weather dependent. In the event of inclement weather we will be celebrating dragons on a day in the future when the time is right.

Find this blue dragon egg!

Papermaking with Plants Workshop

Friday, September 10, 3-5 pm
Richmond Free Library (on the lawn)

Join the library and artist Emma Percy to learn to transform raw plant fibers into handmade paper, following a hands-on process that is many centuries old. We will work with locally harvested plants such as nettles and cornhusks to make pulp, and everyone will make several sheets of paper to use on their future creative endeavors.

Free. Registration required. Limited to 18 participants. This is an adult program; interested teens are also welcome. Program will be held outside (no masks required); however, in case of inclement weather, we will use the library’s Community Room and ask folks to mask up.

This workshop is now FULL. To be added to the waitlist, fill out this form: https://forms.gle/QKvrDTSDcCxnYhhd9
