"Anya is finally a Moth Keeper, the protector of the lunar moths that allow the Night-Lily flower to bloom once a year. Her village needs the flower to continue thriving and Anya is excited to prove her worth and show her thanks to her friends with her actions, but what happens when being a Moth Keeper isn’t exactly what Anya thought it would be?”

Saturday, March 23, 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm
Designing My Library: work by Sheffield 3rd Grade Students. Refreshments in the Great Hall. The artwork will be on display in the hallway gallery March 23 through the end of April.

For all ages. In an effort to include young people in the conversation regarding the Building Project to either expand the Carnegie Library or build a new library on a different site, local elementary students from the Gill-Montague Regional School District were asked to consider what a new (or renovated) library would look like. The assignment was led by art teacher Jocelyn Castro-Santos, in collaboration with Youth Services Librarian Angela Rovatti-Leonard, from the Montague Public Libraries.

The Great Falls Discovery Center is kindly displaying the students' artwork in their hallway gallery.
