* WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY! If the weather is bad, please call the Library during library hours to see if anyone is there before setting out: 802 492-3410. Our Town has the best Road Crew in the State (in my estimation!) and the Library has very dedicated trustees and volunteer staffers, but sometimes the weather gets the better of all of us!

  • REMEMBERING JOHN O’DOWD and GARY SALMON: In the last two months, our Town and our Library lost two remarkable friends.
  • JOHN was a member of both the Famous Books Book Club and the Writer’s Group. His humor, insight and good will made him someone who made a wonderful difference in our lives. I particularly appreciated the keen observations of the haiku he published in The Times, and his down-to-earth, on-target comments in Writers’ Group.
  • GARY was a beloved forester, expert on everything to do with trees, dynamic speaker and teacher. We will greatly miss his annual talks on his recent discoveries and meditations: spirited and packed with valuable information. I would love to see a book of his Times articles and the photographs he posted in the Library entryway.
  • REMEMBERING LARRY CARRARA: We remember LARRY for his book, A Moose for Jessica, which encouraged all of us, especially children, to pay attention to nature and its creatures. He was a friend to all, someone whose wave in passing made the day brighter.


* NEW QUILT RAFFLE: We’ll announce details soon. Thanks again to TRISH NORTON for her art and initiative!

Coming Events:

  • We’re taking a pause in February and March, and starting up in April. SAVE THE DATE: FRIDAY, APRIL 21st (EARTH DAY) for a presentation by LILY FRENCH on plastics: their impact and how to avoid using them. Details to come!
