What's New

As the heat of summer settles in, remember that your library is the perfect place to cool down and relax for a few hours. So, come on in!

Our summer program, Every Hero Has a Story, kicks off Wednesday, June 24 at 10:30 with a magic show by Tom Joyce. These programs will run for seven weeks throughout the summer. Check our website for more details.

Our children's Story Hour on June 23 at 10:00 will be continuing our At the Beach theme with stories and activities about water. Crafting and snacks included.

On Sunday, July 12 at 2:00 Roberta Harold will discuss the many fascinating tidbits of history she found while writing her novel Heron Island.

Canfield Gallery
And don't forget to stop in and see the work of Bennington watercolor artist Tony Connor. His exhibit of landscapes paintings inspired by the Vermont scenery will be open until June 30.

Pick up your Passport to Vermont Libraries!
Visit many of Vermont's unique and charming libraries and have your library passport stamped at participating libraries. Collect as many stamps as you can. There will be a prize for the child, the young adult, and the adult who collect the most stamps. Pick up your passport at the front desk, and get your first stamp!

Volunteer Opportunity
We have a Teddy Bear Picnic planned for July 25. We are looking for volunteers to help us with the event. We would welcome students who are seeking community service credits. Please contact the library and speak with Phyllis.
