The Agriculture of New Zealand January 25 6:30PM
In the white of January, the Craftsbury Public Library offers an armchair travelling trip to the green of New Zealand's South Island. Louise and Randi Calderwood recently travelled to New Zealand, and they will share their experience with the public on Sunday, January 25 at 6:30PM. The Calderwoods will show slides, with an emphasis on agriculture. They will also provide an overview of the country's agricultural economy and grass based production system. Come for the photos of sunshine and green grass or to learn about the New Zealand system of farming.
Learn to Solder- Friday, February 6 at 3PM
The Craftsbury Public Library will hold a workshop on learning to solder on Friday, February 6 from 3-5PM. The library will be using a through-hole soldering kit designed for the beginner. It has a low parts count so anyone can easily complete it. Once it’s put together red LED “eyes” on the metal insect will light up brighter or darker according to how much light is getting to the photosensor. Soldering involves melting metal to put electronics together, and is not suggested for younger children. This workshop is for teens and adults, but those under 12 who are interested are welcome to participate with an adult assistant.
The library will have 15 kits available for use. Pre-registration is suggested to ensure a kit will be available. For more information or to pre-register call 586-9683 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This program has been generously funded by Concept 2, and there is no cost to participate.
