|Art this month features the paintings of Joy Wyman.|
Welcome to my cow exhibit, recently featured at Jericho Ale & Bean. My name is Joy Wyman, I grew up in Richmond and currently reside in Underhill. I am a self taught artist with a love of cows. I see their serenity and innocence, love their big noses, and appreciate and have gratitude for their life force.
My collection spans the last 8 years during which time I became a mother to two beautiful children and encompasses my recent journey into single motherhood. These cows have been my peace, my escape, and my hope.
Each painting is done in acrylics and most are for sale. Many can also be purchased in print as packaged blank greeting cards. Please contact me via email if you are interested at [email protected].
Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy my collection as much as I do.
|The Board of Trustees will meet on Thursday, September 21st at 7pm. This meeting will be held in-person. A virtual meeting is available for those who wish to remain remote. Please contact Holly ([email protected]) to receive the link.|

Master Gardeners’ September Update
The gardens at the library continue to flourish! The garden’s produce is coming on strong, especially the summer squash, green beans, and sunflowers. Please stop by and enjoy the lovely plantings.
We continue to donate our produce to our local food shelf and our friends at Jeri Hill.
If you are interested in adding to our bounty please feel free to leave your produce by the bike rack any time before 9am on Friday. We will continue to donate weekly through the growing season. We will check daily and can refrigerate. Thank you to the generous folks who have already been doing this. Incredible onion donation last week.
And thank you to everyone who attended the “Harry Potter Tea”, especially all the beautiful children. Happily, the weather cooperated. It was fun to see all the kids running around the garden holding their snitches to fly. We were delighted to see many costumes. If you missed the Tea Party, the Harry Potter signage and Platform 9 ¾ are still in the garden. Please stop by for a look. It’s a special place to stop and sit for awhile.
