They are done in acrylic on canvas board and wood, colored pencil, a paper collage, oil on canvas, pastels, photographs, a photo montage, prints, stained glass mosaic, watercolor, and woodblock print.

Isabella Oehry

Vermont artist, Isabella Oehry, was born and raised in the Principality of Lichtenstein, a small European country sandwiched between Austria and Switzerland. She traveled extensively in her early twenties and eventually settled in her beloved Vermont.

Isa harbors a deep love for the beauty and simplicity of farm life, which she expresses through “primitive folk art”, glass paintings, Bavarian style “Bauernmalerei,” as well as humorous wood carvings.

Here are some of her pictures on display at the Library:

Exhibits have been done by local craftsmen. Several are available for either a donation to the library or for a fee.

Many thanks to the owners who have given them to the library for showing in the gallery so you can enjoy the views of Caspian.

Book Discussion – “The Lemon Tree” by Sandy Tolan

The Lemon Tree” focuses on one small stone house in Ramla.  Built in 1936 by an Arab family but acquired by a Jewish family after the Israelis captured the city in 1948, this simple stone house has anchored for decades the hopes of both its displaced former owners and its new Jewish occupants. Tolan chronicles the unlikely chain of events that in 1967 brought a long-dispossessed Palestinian
son to the threshold of his former home, where he unexpectedly finds himself being welcomed by
the daughter of Bulgarian Jewish immigrants. Though that visit exposes bitterly opposed interpretations of the past, it opens a real, albeit painful, dialogue about possibilities for the future. 
The contested stone house eventually becomes into a kindergarten for Arab children and a center for Jewish-Arab coexistence.

Copies available for loan at the start of each month.

Find the Zoom link our website calendar at or meet at the library.
