New Paint and Carpet make for a New Look in the Library
The Library got a facelift this summer! With a new yellow paint job, new carpeting and a bit of rearranging the place looks clean and fresh! This all couldn't have been accomplished without the help of many volunteers! There were a total of 30 people who helped move books, shelving, desks and computers into the hall and then move them all back in again(in the correct order!) Many folks did multiple shifts and some camefor a short time to lend some real muscles when needed. It was an overwhelming task made fun by the wonderful community members lending a hand! Our thanks go out to everyone of them! Come on in and check out our new look and check out a book too!
Wonder by R.J. Palacio
Come in and check out a copy of this years Vermont Reads book, Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This book won the Dorothy Canfield Fisher award this year. It is a great book for young adults on up and I hope to have mixed ages at our discussion groups! I encourage adults to read this wonderful book about a twelve year old boy with facial deformities trying to make friends in middle school. It is told with insight and humor through his eyes as well as his sister and his friends. There will also be a combined program this Fall with a Drury High School English class and a Stamford middle school class to get together for a discussion and project related to the issues in the book. .

Present: Caroline Burch, Pat Burton and Judith Holmgren.

Brief meeting to move forward decisions about re-carpeting and painting the library prior to school opening the end of August.
Trustees reviewed carpet options and came to consensus on the selection: Garden Bench. This will be approved by the full vote of the board over the next week.
Trustees also did a preliminary assessment of what will be involved in removing bookcases, books and other materials from the library to facilitate the carpeting. Burch will draw up a preliminary plan, with input from Community Librarian Trisha Carlson and School Librarian Carol Ethier-Kipp, for the procedure to accomplish this.
Trustees also need to secure volunteers for the move and the painting, prior to the new carpet being laid down. Trustees will talk to individuals who might be willing to help.
