Tug Collective arrives tomorrow, June 3rd, with their traveling project ‘Who Eats at Taco Bell?”. Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar, Co-Artistic Directors, will ceremoniously bike into town and make their way to the library, where they will set up their ‘Taco Encampment’.
During their stay, they will make tacos with people, prompt dialogue, exhibit interactive art, and invite innovative forms of engagement around the question: What is it going to take for us to truly live inter-culturally?
Join us, and the Tug Collective, for Tacos and conversation Saturday morning at the Vermillion Area Farmer’s Market, at the Platz, 9 – 12.
We will follow that up with a bike jaunt out to Spirit Mound, to visit this locally infamous spot along the Lewis & Clark Trail. We will depart from the Library at 2 pm. All are welcome!
The Library will be closed all day on Sunday, May 29th and Monday, May 30th, in observance of Memorial Day.
In addition, we will now be closed every Sunday through Labor Day.
Happy Summer, Vermillionaires!

Unfortunately, tonight’s discussion on Long-term care options has been postponed until a later date. We will share this new date and time in the media when it is determined.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is proud to host a community discussion on Vermillion’s need for long-term care facilities. On hand to discuss the topic will be physical therapist Ruth Scott, Bill Anderson, and a representative from Sanford Vermillion; the discussion will be facilitated by Michelle Maloney.
For those living in rural areas, a lack of long-term care facilities can present hardship and difficult choices. People in need of long-term care services and their families must decide if someone is able to provide care in their home or relocate the person to a facility outside of their community. Relocation to another community can be difficult for cultural reasons, as well as making it difficult for family members to visit frequently. The relocation of residents for long-term care also has an adverse economic effect on the community. As a community with limited long-term care options, this community discussion will aim to bring some potential solutions to light.
Coming next week!
Film and community discussion on human trafficking – Tuesday, March 8th at 7 pm in the Kozak Community Room. Find out more about this important social issue, and ways to become involved in fighting it.
