Ballot Issues Discussion and Election ReviewHere:) Vermillion Public Library
We are officially Outside the Lines this week! Don’t miss these two special events:
On Friday, September 16th at 7 pm we will host our next Books & Brews event as a meet & greet ‘Happy Hour’ with our new Library Director, Daniel Burniston! We invite community members to our ‘Beer Garden’ – in the garden behind the library. Adults aged 21 and up only, of course. There will be live music, refreshments, a limited selection of craft beers to sample, and participants are encouraged to bring their own favorites.
And on Saturday, September 17th at 7 pm, join us for our first ever ‘Outside the Library Drive-In Movie Night’ in our parking lot! Patrons of all ages are welcome to view the new, live-action ‘Jungle Book’ with us, and munch on popcorn. Bring your own chairs and beverages.
These events are a part of Outside the Lines, a global initiative designed to reintroduce libraries to their local communities. From Sept. 11-17, 2016, organizations will host events and campaigns worldwide designed to get people thinking – and talking – about libraries in a whole new way.
Things are really picking up around here with the impending return of Children’s and Adult programming! Our Adult programming will return on Tuesday, September 6th, with a very special session of our Long Overdue series.
We are excited to host the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Clay and Yankton Counties as she provides the community with an overview of the work they are busy doing in our communities, and ways for you to be involved. Takes place in the Kozak Community Room at 7 pm.
This year’s One Book South Dakota is ‘Some Luck’ by Jane Smiley. We’ve got copies of the book available for checkout here at our Circulation Desk, courtesy of the South Dakota Humanities Council. A discussion of the book is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13th at 3 pm, hosted by Betsy Simons.
The VPL will participate in this weekend’s City-wide Rummage days: Come by the library anytime during open hours on Friday, June 17th (only) to find some free book treasure!
Election Day is Tuesday, June 7th.

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!
We are pleased to host sculptor Christopher Meyer this evening as part of our continuing Artists & Authors series, 7 pm in the Kozak Community Room.
