Water Privatization and the Commons: The East Montpelier Springs Action
Who Owns Water film segment of Freedom & Unity: The Vermont Movie.
A proposal to tap an aquifer for a water bottling operation in East Montpelier triggered important community conversations about ownership of the resource. The proposal to bottle and sell spring water from a source right outside the capital city ignited a lively civic debate over ownership of water both in East Montpelier and at the State Legislature.
Presentation by Carolyn Shapiro and Paul Erlbaum, East Montpelier residents and members of the East Montpelier Groundwater Study Group.

KHL is participating in an Inter Library Loan Courier System with several but not all libraries throughout the state. We are currently scheduled to get our ILL books delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 pm. Materials from non-participating libraries will still be sent through the mail and arrive unscheduled. You will still be notified when your request arrives. This is a pilot program so please be patient as we and the other libraries around the state figure out how to make it most effective. As always, ask if you have questions!
The Library sends out email reminders to alert you two days before materials are due, and (if they are not returned) when they are three days overdue.
Please note that these emails are courtesy reminders. Patrons are responsible for keeping track of their materials and due dates. Printed slips are available at time of check-out, and account activity can be monitored through our website. The Library will not waive fines due to email failures.
To monitor online, click on catalog/login at the top of our homepage, then enter your library barcode number or username + password.
If you don't receive email reminders but would like to, just stop by the circulation desk or give us a call, and provide your email address.
