    6612 VT-12, Berlin, VT 05602, USA

    Just before Town Meeting Day, you will have the chance to learn about local initiative to bring better broadband to central Vermont.  Founded by Berlin Selectboard member Jeremy Hansen, Central Vermont Internet is seeking approval from communities to form a “Communications Union District” to provide residents with high-speed, net-neutral Internet service through a non-profit, community owned provider.   Already on the ballot in 13 towns, CVI would be funded only by subscribers, not by taxpayers.  CVI is inspired by the “EC Fiber” community internet which is already serving towns south of our area.
    You can hear Jeremy interviewed for Vermont Edition on VPR at: http://digital.vpr.net/post/trying-get-central-vermont-wired#stream/0
    And you can keep in touch on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CentralVermontInternet/
    Bring your questions – Saturday, March 3 at 5:30 pm at the Capital City Grange Hall, 6612 Vt. Rt 12 S, Berlin, VT 05602.
    The program is FREE and open to all. Community Potluck will follow at about 6:30.   Bring your favorite dish to share!

    Tickets are now on sale at the Aldrich Public Library for the Friends of the Library Annual Winter Banquet/Auction on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at 5:30 pm at the Barre Elks Lodge.   A $30 ticket will purchase hors d’oeuvres made by the Friends, a delicious beef tenderloin dinner (vegetarian option available) prepared by Elks’ chef John Cutler and staff, and dessert donated by Ben & Jerry’s. There will be a cash bar and plenty of time to socialize, bid on silent auction items, and view special items slated for the live auction.

    A highly prized homemade pecan pie sparked a fierce round of competitive bidding at last year’s event, and the Friends are hoping for even more excitement this year, as several donors have come forward with unusual treasures including a pair of wool Kashan area rugs (4 ½’ x 8 ½’ each), an iconic Vermont photograph by Richard W. Brown, an opportunity to be a character in author Archer Mayor’s newest mystery, tickets to events, gift certificates from local businesses, and – of course – another pie. A growing list of silent and live auction items can be found on the library’s website www.aldrichpublicibrary.org.

    Purchase your tickets to the banquet/auction by Friday, February 16, to be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the Quarry Kitchen and Spirits. Call the library at 476-7550 for more details.

    Join us in celebrating the publication of the new picture book, Salamander Sky, written by Katy Farber and illustrated by Meg Sodano. Every spring, the first steady, warm rain brings the migration of thousands of spotted salamanders to ponds and pools, often across busy roads. Salamander Sky features a mother and daughter who go out on a rainy night to help the salamanders cross the road safely. This dramatic, full-color, picture book introduces the reader to the elusive spotted salamander and the perilous nighttime journey that takes place every spring. Amphibians worldwide desperately need protection. This book is a valuable tool for getting children engaged in conservation. At this event you’ll also learn how to get involved in amphibian monitoring work at NBNC and the Vermont Center for Ecostudies.
