Programs and Events

Moving Wall Museum

October's exhibit - “Seasons of Wilmot"
Photographer Jon Schwartz will be showcasing his photos taken in the Wilmot community.  The theme of Wilmot inspired the idea of inviting members of the Wilmot community to take their own photos and bring in a snapshot depicting "What Wilmot Means to Me," to be displayed along side Jon’s work.

Coming to the Wall in November - Jared Beerman's unique action figure photography. "I enjoy recreating scenes from popular movies and use my own imagination to create unique photos. My photography covers numerous genres of pop culture such as Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Sci-Fi, and WWE wrestling." Jared's photos are truly one-of -a-kind!  See his website for a sneak peak at his work.

7 - 8 p.m. every third Wednesday of the month, Jennifer Stuart will teach knitting in the Creativity Lab. Get ready for winter by starting a project to keep you warm. Jennifer will start you off with an infinity scarf. Bring size 6 or 7 needles for this project. Or, If you already have a project going and would like some help, come along and join the fun. The idea is to socialize while you are knitting!

Eastern Coyote
Thursday, November 29 - 7 pm - Project Coyote "The Real Eastern Coyote" - Wolf and coyote expert Chris Schadler tells us the true story of the eastern coyote – how and when it arrived in New England; how it lives among us; and how it contributes to keeping our forests and fields healthy. Despite the ecological benefits the coyote brings, it is the most persecuted carnivore in North America.

Barbara Kingsolver's novel "Prodigal Summer," which, among its pages, defends the existence of the coyote, is currently available in the Wilmot Library. [moreAlso, read Jonathan Way's article on the Eastern Coyote. [link]
