Dungeons and Dragons / SAT. 12-4 / Discord

Beginner Dungeons and Dragons

Saturdays from 12-4 pm via Discord


If you have ever wanted to learn to play Dungeons and Dragons or are a veteran looking for a group to play with, this starter-friendly campaign, designed and led by Dungeon  Master Vinni Yasi, will allow for both a fun learning experience and open-ended gameplay.

Feel free to log into the server at any time, where we can provide answers to questions and develop a welcoming community!

Dungeons and Dragons is a communal storytelling game. The first part of the class will be the set-up- the character creation & the rules- then participants will have a chance to jump right into the game. All you need to play is an internet capable computer (or similar device) and a microphone. A set of polyhedral dice, and paper and pencil can be a plus!

Ages Teen to Adult- moderate computer skills are handy.

From the Parlor to the Polling Place / Video

From the Parlor to the Polling Place: Stories and Songs from the Suffragists brought to you by the Friends of the Library

Music was essential to the movement: each state convention of suffragists began and ended with songs such as “Shall Women Vote?” “New America,” “Giving the Ballot to the Mother” or “Voting as we Pray,” as well as rousing Christian hymns. Radtke also traces the movement’s alignment with other social justice initiatives such as temperance, labor conditions, wage equity, peace, and children’s welfare.

Linda Radtke, a classically trained singer will be performing live with accompanist Cameron Steinmetz from the Charlotte Congregational Church.  Linda was a Vermont high school teacher for thirty-one years and now produces the VPR Choral Hour on Vermont Public Radio.

Into Spring: Qi Gong Flow / Video

Why Qi Gong?

  • Awakens us to our own wisdom for the day
  • Makes space for the self before we tackle the world.
  • Strengthens us as we navigate medical, social, work, psychological & spiritual challenges.
  • Activates our innate inner life resources: courage, self-compassion, immune system, decision making, creativity, peacefulness, gratitude, sense of belonging, and the ability to relax and be strong.
