Book Exchanges

Outreach maintains book exchanges at the following locations: Red Hen Bakery (Middlesex), the Berlin Mall, (Berlin) the Elm Street Laundromat (Montpelier), and the Post Office Cafe (Worcester).

 

Books exchange materials are give-away books that do not need to come back to the library.  

 

Book Groups

The Kellogg-Hubbard Library Outreach Book Group will be reading There, There by Tommy Orange beginning in mid-March. Enrollment deadline is March 8th. Limited to 20 participants. Contact Heather Kralik if interested: outreachkhl@kellogghubbard.org.

 

Story Time On-the-Road

Every spring and fall we take story time on the road to venues in each of our member towns.  In addition to a read-aloud, we offer give-away books and craft time!  We had to cancel our spring 2020 storytimes on the road, but we're hoping to reschedule for small outdoor venues in the summer!

 

Child Care Providers

The Kellogg-Hubbard Library promotes pre-literacy skills through its outreach service to child care providers.  Volunteers choose and deliver books to area day cares, often leading story times.   To learn more, or to volunteer, contact Heather Kralik at 223-4665, or, email: khloutreach@kellogghubbard.org
