Vermont Reads

The Calef Memorial Library is pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Vermont Reads program, sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council. 10 books were donated to the library, thanks to the generosity of the Vermont Reads underwriter, Renewable NRG Systems, Inc. of Hinesburg, with additional support from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation. Stay posted for additional information about community events throughout spring and summer!

Time for some winter reading!

Love a good murder mystery? Try Swedish writer  Camilla Läckberg‘s crime novels. We have all seven books, when they are in. They have been wildly popular…call or stop by to check out or reserve a copy!

Too many books!!!


The Calef Library will be temporarily halting its policy of accepting books from patrons for use in our annual book sale.  We are a bit overwhelmed with books at the moment, and anxious to find space for other worthy community events.  We encourage you to use local drop boxes, the Restore in Barre, or other donation sites.  Thank-you for your understanding and support!

Flora and Fauna!

This week, the Calef Summer Program, part of the “Fizz, Boom, Pop!” program, has been all about critters and plants.  We have spent lots of time outside, exploring the plant and animal habitat around the library.  We have found lots of bugs, learned to identify parts of plants, and made lots of fun crafts.  Next week…Techno Fun!  We will be looking at machines and how they work.  Check out the loose schedule and feel free to donate materials!
