Be sure to stop by the Kellogg-Hubbard Library during Art Walk & Fest to peruse our collection of Montpelier postcards near the adult circulation desk AND to view the art exhibit by ARA artists AND go to the children's library to view John Snell's photography of Animals in Botswana AND walk around the outside of the library to read our Poetry StoryWalkÒ
Thank you everyone for the generous amount of books you have donated to the library. However, our storage closet is just about full, so we cannot accept any more book donations until November 1.
The Fall Book Sale prices will be by donation, starting Monday, October 6th... Pay what you want! The Special Treasures books ($5 and $10) are not by donation.
We have been busy this spring and summer at the library, taking care of some necessary lawn and landscaping work. After tearing up the lawn for our District Heat installation and chimney repair work, we took the opportunity to till in and reseed the grass. We also were able to pull out some invasive Burning Bush on the side of the lawn neighboring Trinity Church and plan to plant new, non-invasive shrubs in that same area. The library purchased two new benches soon to be installed on the property; these benches match the new benches throughout the downtown.
We love to have patrons and community members on our lawn, though we kindly ask folks to use the walkways rather than the lawn as a pathway. We are keeping the lawn a bit longer than normal right now, while the new grass is taking root, but you are welcome to use it for picnics, gatherings, and of course, reading books!
