ARLINGTON - The Martha Canfield Library in Arlington has a host of events planned over the next few weeks, from the entertaining to the educational.

On Saturday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m., Tom Weakly will discuss his new book "The Story Teller." Mr. Weakly is a Vermont humorist and storyteller who regularly entertains audiences throughout the U. S. and abroad with memories of his depression-era childhood, tall tales, and well-researched historical stories. With his laid back style and mischievous honesty, listeners often feel they are listening to a late night confession over pie.

On Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 3 p.m., Linda Furiya returns to the Martha Canfield Library to read from her book "How to Cook a Dragon" and to discuss Asian food in Vermont. She is a Vermont resident author, cooking instructor and entrepreneur and has extensive experiences to share from her experiences both locally and abroad.

On Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. (rescheduled): Adam Kane, the director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum's Maritime Research Institute, will discuss his research experiences in "Life on Board: Studying Lake Champlain Sunken Canal Boats." He has worked with the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum since 1999 and is both an Academy of Underwater Sciences Scientific Diver and a Monitor for the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve.

All events are free to the public. Additional information on these events is available at The Martha Canfield Library, which is located at 528 East Arlington Road in Arlington or call (802) 375-2219.
