Maple Madness: A Week of Celebration at the UVM Libraries

The University of Vermont Libraries are celebrating the creation of a new Maple Syrup Research Website (http://library.uvm.edu/maple) with a week of programs, exhibits, and food, beginning March 28th, 2010.  The website is a comprehensive subject guide in the field of maple syrup, including historical publications and photographs related to maple syrup research at the University of Vermont.

Cook Maple, Win Prizes

A Maple Cook-Off will be held at UVM’s Davis Center on March 28th, from 4 to 6PM, featuring a buffet of maple delicacies, music by acoustic trio The Growlers, maple displays, children’s activities, and prizes of gift certificates to local eateries (awarded by food critics, activists, and producers).  The event is free and open to the public.  For more information or to register: http://maplecookoff.eventbrite.com 
A Party in the Woods
John Elder, a Professor at Middlebury College, will present “A Party in the Woods: Sugaring, Community, and Celebration Under a Changing Sky,” on maple sugaring as a traditional rural lifeway that both illuminates contemporary challenges like climate change and exemplifies the need for celebration within environmental thinking today.  The talk will take place in Bailey/Howe Library’s Special Collections on March 31st, at 5:30 PM, and is co-sponsored by Special Collections and the UVM Libraries.
Elder’s talk will follow a 4:30 PM reception to celebrate the launch of the Maple Syrup Research Website in the Bailey/Howe Library lobby.
Maple Exhibits
Maple exhibits in the Bailey/Howe Library include images of sugaring-off parties, historic recipes, the story of Helen Nearing, and much, much more.  The exhibits are located in the Bailey/Howe Library Lobby and in Special Collections.  They will be on display through June 2010.
