Please let us know your email address next time you come in. This will help you keep track of your checked out items and when they are due.

Art In The Library

The artist currently displaying his paintings is Tom Atkins from West Pawlet, Vermont. He is an artist, poet, and writer who moved from Virginia to Vermont in 2009. “When I moved to Vermont, I also moved to color. I rediscovered art, but this time not as a representative of a thing, but as a way to capture a mood, a feeling.”

His website is http://www.quarryhouse.us

Stop in and see the colorful artwork.

Any interested artists, who have artwork or photographs that they would like to display at the library, can call the library at 658-2927. We have wall space to display your art and would love to hear from you. There is no charge to display it here.

Book Discussion Group

The group meets at 7:00 P.M. on the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. NEXT BOOK CLUB: DEVOTION by Adam Makos on Wednesday, May 11TH at 7 PM.

The books being discussed are available from the Library so you can read them prior to the meeting.  New members are always welcome to join. Please join us even if you are only able to come once in a while or just want to come for the books in which you are interested.
