A History of the Concept of Race at Canfield Library

The Martha Canfield Library in Arlington invites you to our Vermont Reads 2019 kick-off event. Professor William Edelglass will trace the intellectual history of the concept of race in the West, from its prehistory to today at the Library on Sunday, September 22 at 2:00pm.

The first European to divide the peoples of the world into distinct races, in the seventeenth century, claimed that the Sami people of northern Scandinavia were one of four races on earth; Native Americans, Europeans, South Asians, and North Africans together were considered a second race. How did such a bizarre distinction among groups of people develop into one of the most historically significant ideas of the modern world? 

Vermont Reads 2019 is a program of the Vermont Humanities Council and this event is free and open to the public. Contact the Library at 802-375-6153 or martha_canfield_lib@hotmail.com for more information.

Gardening: Low Tunnels for Season Extension

LOW TUNNELS FOR SEASON EXTENSION –AND MORE By Gordon Clark, UVM Extension Master Gardener

Low tunnels are the contemporary version of the “cold boxes,” made out of windows and wood frames,  which older generation gardeners used to start plants early in the season. They are also every bit as good for extending your season well into the fall and early winter – even in Vermont.

If you’d like to learn how to build a low tunnel, the University of Vermont Extension Master Gardener Program is offering a free hands-on workshop on Aug. 16 at the Yellow Barn Community Garden in Arlington (http://go.uvm.edu/emg-lowtunnel-aug16).

We need at least 15 attendees registered to entice a Burlington gardener to make the trek. If you know of someone who would be interested please encourage them to register and attend.

"Life In a Jar" Talk at Martha Canfield Library

Dr. Jack Mayer, author of the book “Life In a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project” will tell the story of Irena Sendler, a holocaust hero who rescued 2,500 children from the Warsaw ghetto. Sendler’s story remained unknown after the war—until three Kansas teens uncovered a reference to her heroism 60 years later. They helped transform her story into a National History Day play called Life in a Jar, finally bringing recognition to Sendler’s heroism and helping to open dialogue about the Holocaust in Poland. The “girls from Kansas” continue to champion Sendler’s legacy—courage, tolerance, and respect for all—and are living examples of the power individuals have to change the world. Sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council and the Library, this talk is free and open to the public. Call the Library at 802-375-6153 for more information.
