The Importance Of Books And Reading
St. Johnsbury Athenaeum librarian Adele West-Fisher thanked St. Johnsbury Rotarians for all the books the club has donated to Athenaeum during her presentation at the club's weekly meeting June 1. The donations have allowed her to buy books the Athenaeum would not otherwise be able to buy. She spoke about the Athenaeum's Acorn Club: the goal of the Acorn is to promote the importance of reading to young children, ages Pre-K to 2nd grade, and to increase this awareness with young parents. The Acorn Club is also a great way to bring together children from many different communities to share a common passion for reading. One of the programs is Story Time are Friday's at 10:30 a.m., when guest readers (including members of St. Johnsbury Rotary) read. The Athenaeum is currently reaching out to 14 day care places, where an AmeriCorps volunteer rotates books between the day cares. There are also various book shelves in town where books are free, at at Umbrella, the Department of Health, Women Wellness Center and Catamount Art, to name a few. Adele also discussed the benefits of reaching children early with books and reading, giving an example of having the kindergarten student from the St. Johnsbury School visiting to the Athenaeum later in the day to receive library cards. Adele moved to Vermont from Florida where she was a school librarian. She and her husband made the moved when he took a job with Northern Counties Health Care.

A Combination Of Collections And History At Fairbanks Museum
Henry Choong, the curator of Natural Sciences at the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium, told about his specialty of looking at animals and figuring out how they are different and how they are related, during a St. Johnsbury Rotary Club weekly meeting in May. He originally worked with (and still has a relationship) the Royal Ontario Museum. Henry conducts collections-based research on the biodiversity, systematics and evolution of hydroids (Hydrozoa: Cnidaria) based upon analysis of morphological, behavioural and molecular data. This work is carried out within the framework of collaborative and interdisciplinary research with other workers at the Royal Ontario Museum and other museums, universities, and research institutions within, and outside of hydrozoan systematics. His interests include other cnidarians (e.g. corals and jellyfish), molluscs, ectoprocts (bryozoans) and brachiopods. Henry likes Fairbanks Museum for a number of reasons -- its collections (most are original collections) and local history, and the fact that the museum is a museum of a museum! The Fairbanks is like a snapshot of time. This summer there will be a dinosaur collection and a biodiversity exhibit.
