The a cappella choral group “Wrensong” brings more holiday spirit to the Quechee Library.  While specializing in Renaissance music, the group—including Quechee’s own Dave and Helen Clark, will feature music from a variety of religious and cultural periods – including popular singalong favorites such as “Deck The Halls” and “Angels We Have Heard on High” .  The Friends of the QW Libraries invite all to join us to celebrate the solstice with music, tea and refreshment.

Thank you for your support!

Each year our library boards submit a budget request to the Town of Hartford to be reviewed by the town manager and voted on by the selectboard.  Last December  the Hartford Selectboard  and town manager were considering a 10 % reduction in funding for the town’s three incorporated libraries. As this would have a substantial and harmful impact on town-wide library service, we asked your support in voicing your concern to the Hartford Town Manager and Selectboard.  The benefits of being an incorporated library in an engaged community are clearly multi-fold.  Ultimately the town manager recommended full funding of the library requests in the final proposed budget, which the Selectboard then accepted.  We are grateful for that decision and for the articulate and passionate support voiced by you.  Our background page can be read here. for a fuller understanding of the Hartford libraries’  history, organization, differences and services.  Stop in often and enjoy the many resources you have helped to preserve and extend.  We hope the budget review will be clear sailing this year, thanks to careful stewardship and visible support and need.

Bugbee Book Discussion, Dec. 7

Generally meeting on the first Friday of the month, at 12:45 p.m.,  join a book discussion group led by librarian Marieke Sperry.  The December discussion will be Ordinary Grace by Kent Krueger.  Let the Bugbee Center staff or either library know if you would like a copy delivered to the Center.   A grant from the White River Rotary supports large print copies.    All are welcome!  

Air Conditioning for Wilder Club and Library: Hall and Library!

We are delighted to announce that the Wilder Club & Library was awarded a Cultural Facilities Grant in the amount of $7200 toward the installation of an air conditioning system in the main hall/auditorium of our historic clubhouse.   The system cools the hall during hot days and aids in heat efficiency in winter.   The project has also been supported by the Mascoma Savings Bank Foundation, the Byrne Foundation and the Friends of the Quechee/Wilder Libraries.  The project was recently completed in advance of the Montpelier awards ceremony in early 2017.
