Grand Opening and Moving

Just one last thing before the big party – we need to move the all the books! We will be moving books on the following days:

Sunday July 14th 9am to 2pm
Monday July 15th 9am to 2pm
Tuesday July 16th 9am to 2pm
Wednesday July 17th 9am to 6pm
Thursday July 18th 9am to 2pm

This is how it will work: meet at Folsom School 75 South Street at the old library. Get your assigned shelves. Put the books on your shelves into a box. Drive the box over to the Worthen Library 28 Community Lane (next to Wally’s Place and the health center) and put the books on their new shelf.

Everything will be color coded and well labeled and everyone will get a map with the shelf locations. Please call or email Keagan at southherolibrary@gmail.com or 802.372.6209 with any questions.

The library will be closed Tuesday July 16th through Friday July 19th for the move.

Mah Jongg

Join us every Thursday at 3:00pm for Mah Jongg. Starting September 14th.

Mah Jongg (or Maahj, as it is often called) is a fascinating, rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards. The game originated in China but its exact origins are shrouded in story and myth. Some claim it was the game of Chinese royalty, played in secret to keep the knowledge to themselves. Others claim it was invented by a Chinese General to amuse his troops during long months of battle. More recent investigations point to early versions of this popular tile game appearing as recently as 150 years ago in China as a variant of card games. Whichever story you choose, there is general agreement that the game we play and love originated in China, and popularized in the United States by Joseph Babcock at the beginning of the 20th century.
