Third Anniversary Celebration

One World Library Project
Third Anniversary Celebration

SUNDAY, April 17th
2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Lawrence Memorial Library
North Street, Bristol, Vermont

There will be activities for all ages as well as tea and treats.  Check out what new items are in the One World kiosk!  OWLP board members will be available to answer questions or to get your recommendations of books for our collection. The afternoon's focus will be on Japan with a chance to learn Japanese knotting, create origami, learn and play the game Go and experience kamishibai – a type of storytelling with painted cards common in Japan. 

For three years the One World Library Project has been building a collection of books, films and other media about a wide range of world cultures.  Each book in the collection comes with a personal recommendation from a community member. 

OWLP has also proudly presented over 25 programs and events spanning the globe, but with one thing in common:  a local Vermont resident or student with a deep connection to another country has made each presentation. From weaving in the Andes of Peru to camel riding in the Sahara to life growing up in Kabul, Afghanistan, each presenter has shared a wonderful story and given us all a glimpse into a different life.  OWLP is grateful to have such rich resources right here in Vermont and will continue to offer new and unique perspectives on the world.

We hope to see you at the library for the celebration!  Tea, as usual, will be served along with treats!

With warm wishes, 

One World Library Project
