Senegalese Women: A Challenge to Strife- February 21

On Saturday, February 21 at 7PM, the Craftsbury Public Library will offer a sneak preview of a new documentary film on Senegalese women.

Mme. Seynabou Dial, Minister-Counselor of the Embassy of Senegal, will deliver opening remarks on Senegal and on the role of women in Senegal.

The 35-minute film entitled Senegalese Women: A Challenge to Strife represents Senegalese women’s role in promoting peace and prosperity in the country despite chaotic, rampant terrorism in neighboring countries such as Mali, Nigeria, and Libya.

Dial said, “I am honored to be invited. I hope that, through this film, people will recognize women’s role in promoting women’s welfare and peace in my country. Also I hope that people will understand that all Islam and all Africa are NOT terroristic.” 

Dial announced that Senegalese Ambassador Babacar Diagne will sponsor the formal premiere at his Embassy in Washington, DC on March 4.

The film documents the peaceful aspects of Islam and the example Senegal sets in countering extremist Islamic movements. That is in part due to the powerful voice of women opposing violence and seeking to elevate their status as full participants in the national economy.

“It is good timing to show this film, since all over the world so many people fear Islam without differentiation. Dominated by the Sufi and Murid schools, Islam in Senegal definitely calls for peace,” said Dial.

This film is produced by Santis Productions, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Ed Nef Foundation. 

Toy Hacking February 24 3:00PM

Toy Hacking is a fun and playful way to learn how circuits work. We will start with used electronic toys rescued from thrift stores and garage sales. Then we carefully and safely take the toys apart to learn how they work. Participants explore both the simplicity and complexity of these toys and their unique circuits and are shown how to identify inputs, outputs and power. We’ll experiment with circuit bending and reverse engineering while we reimagine and reinvent the toys with materials on hand. For ages 10 and up.

Musician Emily (Wells) Gletsos joins us for story time on Friday, February 27 at 10AM. Emily will share her instruments, music, and songs with the group.
