Come read and discuss some of the most intriguing topics that are not only relevant to Vermonters and New Englanders alike, but to the times we live in today.

Royalton Memorial Library joins with Vermont RETAIN to present our Reading Works Program! Life is rarely ever simple and work can be hard at times. Support and answers to our questions hardly ever just fall out of the sky – but sometimes they can be found in a book.

Reading Works is a new monthly program that focuses on issues that may make it hard to work – anxiety, back pain, and depression for example. Each month we put aside books and materials for you on a certain topic. Royalton Memorial Library will also be hosting a book club each month where we will talk about the monthly topic affecting our community. To top it off, we bring in a community resource at the end of the month to bring a certain skill-set to the table.

This month’s topic is Pain, and we will be focusing on Brigid Kemmerer’s title: A Curse So Dark and Lonely.

STEP 1: You can choose from a list of titles, one or more if you’re interested. We have set copies aside for this month. Just ask the librarian for your options!

STEP 2: Feel free to also join our remote book club. They will be offered on May 13th and April 27th 2021 at 6:00 – 7:00PM.

STEP 3: Next we will be having a yoga session on May 20th via Zoom at 6:00 PM.

If you are interested in a specific title or event call or email our librarian at 763-7094 or to sign up!
