S. de Champlain Rides Again 

Everyone in the Lake Champlain basin is getting on the quadricentennial bandwagon as the summer festivities approach. But at Burlington's Fletcher Free Library, Samuel de C. is getting on the bus.

The library's Outreach Van, that is. The French explorer, looking slightly lumpy but still mustachioed after 400 years, was resurrected, so to speak, by FFL staffer and fabric artist Christine Demarais. He will make his public debut this Saturday as a van passenger in the Kids' Day parade.

After that, Monsieur will stick around to help promote reading--en anglais. And, who knows, maybe he'll do a little more exploring. The place has changed a bit, non?
