Stargazing & Astronomy Event

Wednesday, August 19 from 10-11 p.m.

Thursday, August 20 from 10-11 p.m.

Join Mr. Ian and Mr. Garrett for a socially-distanced stargazing event of the Perseids Meteor Shower. We will meet at Barre City Elementary and Middle School (BCEMS) near the Bike Path. If it rains, we will cancel and reschedule another event at a later date.


Registration is required for each event. In order to host a program that is safe for library staff, volunteers, and community members, we ask that you only register one child + one adult per family.

To register, email Ian at
