Moore Free Library and Williamsville Hall present the final installment of six FREE movies at Williamsville Hall this SATURDAY, August 9 at 7PM.
Part Six “People’s Power” of The Vermont Movie tackles contemporary tensions over energy, independence, the environment and the state’s future. Chronicling the struggle to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, it reveals the power of protest, the influence of lobbyists and the importance of town meeting debate and a citizen legislature. It follows the battle over windmills in Lowell—a struggle over scale, aesthetics and environmental impacts—and explores thorny questions about economics, sovereignty and climate change. Finally, the devastating impacts of Hurricane Irene reveal the power not only of nature, but of people and community.

Yes, I know you are all up to your necks in weeds already, but would anyone have time to help with the weeding at the Library? The west side gardens are very well maintained by Newfane Garden Club. The east side island and south hedges, however, are overgrown and need some trimming and weeding. Please contact the Librarian if you would like to volunteer your time. Thank you!
From time to time, I will list various Library needs in order to help people determine how they can best donate to our wonderful Library. Please contact me if you want any further information.
For now, we are in need of a paper cutter, construction paper for children’s craft projects, small computer speakers and copy paper in varied colors. Thanks!
