S. LONDONDERRY, Vt. – November is a dreary time of year here so it is the perfect time to visit your wonderful House of Books, check out a new or classic book, and curl up with hot cocoa or a cup of tea. There are so many new books in all categories to delight and engage you and your children.
For older folk, we have refreshed our large print collection with about 50 or more recent current fiction editions. Thanks much to Dawn and Trustees at Winhall Library for these donations.
Esther Fishman will be our featured artist for the months of November and December. She will host a reception on Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10:30 a.m. All are invited to view Esther’s amazing pastels, collages, trinkets, and unique earrings. Christmas is coming and original artwork would make a special gift.
Casey Junker Bailey will host an early Thanksgiving kids program Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10:30 a.m. Children and their respective adults always enjoy this special presentation making harvest crafts and decorations for their Thanksgiving table. It is a holiday that reminds us all of everything and everyone that we have to be thankful for.
On Wednesday evenings, from 7-9 p.m., Carol Barclay is still Sitting and Knitting – except for Thanksgiving eve, Wednesday, Nov. 21. Everyone is welcome to come join her to ask advice, swap yarns of wool or simply yarns. Recently donated were many knitting, crocheting, and craft magazines that are yours for the taking.
We hope that you will take the time out of your busy schedules to stop in, check out a book, view the current art exhibit, or peruse the thousands of prints made from the Vaile glass plates. These photos are of the Londonderry area circa 1899 through the early 1900s.
We are located at 15 Old School St. off of Main Street and Thompsonburg Road in South Londonderry. Our hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and 1-5 p.m. with additional hours on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We strive to offer something for everyone and your input is welcomed. See you at the library!
