Volunteers needed for the mobile library service for day-care centres
We are looking for volunteers who would like to participate in our mobile library service, from September to June, taking books to the children in family day-care centres in the Haut-Saint Laurent. The ideal volunteer enjoys the contacts with young children, has a vehicle to go to the centres and can offer approximately seven hours each month to make the visits and prepare for them. Those interested must obtain a proof of lack of impediment - verification of the judicial record from the Sureté du Québec. The work will begin this September, but applying for this document may take several weeks.
The Little Green Library has already been offering this service for several years thanks to a team of three volunteers who serve some 12 day-care centres. We now need three more volunteers in order to offer the service to new centres which have made a request.
Lorelei Muller's paintings at the library
Vernissage on August 4 at 2:00p.m.
Born in 1970, Ms Muller spent much of her childhood doing pencil drawings, while taking high school and community art classes in eastern Ontario. A resident of Ormstown, Quebec since 1990, time for art was challenging to find around the responsibilities of career and raising a family.
In 1999, she took her first watercolour class under the tutelage of local artist Pat Walsh, a multidisciplinary artist exhibited widely in Montreal and Eastern Canada. She attended her weekly classes intermittently until 2006, finally returning to her class again in autumn 2016.
From 2008 to 2016, a career as executive director of a not-for-profit organization for youth left no time for art. Soon after resigning, she began painting again and has dedicated herself to her passion.
Ms Muller has participated in several group exhibitions and has had two solo exhibitions, both in 2017, one at Grove Hall and the other in Ormstown, an exhibition by special invitation of 21 paintings and a demonstration of the watercolour process.
Ms. Muller's inspiration comes from plants and the floral environmentaround her home or during adventures in Eastern Canada and the Adirondacks. The title of her exhibition is The Language of Flowers; intrigued by what different flowers represent, she uses her paintings to express various sentiments as artists did with posies in the Victorian era.
All are welcome to join us for the opening of this exciting exhibition. Refreshments will be served.
