Japan is focus at the Bristol library

BRISTOL-The One World Library Project will be celebrating its third anniversary at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol on Sunday, April 17, from 2-4 p.m.

There will be activities for all ages as well as tea and treats and a chance to meet board members, recommend books for our collection and check out what is new in our kiosk. The focus will be on Japan with a chance to learn Japanese knotting, create origami, learn and play the game Go and experience kamishibai, a type of storytelling with painted cards common in Japan.

For three years the One World Library Project has been building a growing collection of books, films and other media about a wide range of world cultures. Each book in the collection comes with a personal recommendation from a community member. We have also proudly presented over 25 programs and events spanning the globe, but with one thing in common: each presentation has been made by a local Vermont resident or student with a deep connection to another country.

From weaving in the Andes of Peru to camel riding in the Sahara to life growing up in Kabul, Afghanistan, each presenter has shared a wonderful story and given us all a glimpse into a different life. OWLP is grateful to have such a rich resource right here in Vermont and will continue to offer new and unique perspectives.
