Travels to Mongolia with Anita Hotchkiss

On Sunday, January 25th at 2PM, Anita Hotchkiss will share slides and impressions of her recent trip to Mongolia. She visited areas in northern Mongolia near the Siberian border, areas in central Mongolia and the Gobi desert in the south. Today’s Mongolia is a land of contrasts, where modern Uluumbataar exists side by side with nomadic life. This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Vineyard Haven Public Library, and refreshments will be served.

Anita Hotchkiss is an inveterate adventure traveler. Her travels have taken her to many countries around the world. She particularly likes trekking, and has summited Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Her latest trip took her to Mongolia. When not traveling Anita gives her time to various volunteer organizations and spends time with her husband Fred and grandchildren.

The Vineyard Haven Library is open from noon-4pm on Sundays throughout the winter, except for a few holiday weekends. As in past years, the Friends of the Library will be presenting a variety of special programs on Sunday afternoons, including lectures, performances, and free crafting programs for adults and teens. For more information visit the library's online event calendar.
