Earth Day falls on Sunday, April 22nd this year; and leading up to it the City of Vermillion will celebrate Earth Days! Vermillion Earth Days is a week-long community celebration of our environment hosted by Greening Vermillion. The events for 2018 will run between April 16th – 22nd throughout the city.

The Vermillion Public Library will be participating this year with Earth Day themed children’s activities, including a free movie to be shown at the Coyote Twin Theatre on Monday, April 16th starting at 6:30 pm. Join us as we show the animated feature film ‘FernGully: The Last Rainforest.’ This movie event was made possible by the Friends of the Vermillion Public Library!

There will also be a themed movie shown for the Early Out movie during this week. On Thursday, April 19th at 2:00 pm we will be showing ‘The Lorax’ at the Coyote Twin.

Celebrate National Library Week at the VPL with #bookface

During National Library Week (April 8th – April 14th) stop on by the Library to take your picture as part of our fun new #bookface photo series! Posing for a photo involves strategically lining up your face or body with a book cover that has a matching body part to give the impression of completing the cover art. Find your own book amongst the stacks, or choose from our selection at the Circulation Desk! Let us take your photo, or upload your own to Instagram or Facebook and tag us to share! You can also email your photo to vplstaff@vermillionpubliclibrary.org and we’ll share it online for you!
