Librarian at the Calef Memorial Library in Washington, VT.




Hello and Greetings. My name is Bethany Beebe and I am the new librarian at the Calef Memorial Library. I was raised in Southern Vermont and moved to San Francisco where I lived for the past ten years. I realized the city life was not for me and returned home to Vermont where I found a wonderful job as your librarian. Feel free to stop by and say hi while you brows through our growing collection of books.

Fact of the Week

The state has its own version of the Loch Ness Monster.
The Abenaki who originally settled Vermont told stories of a legendary sea serpent named “Tatoskok” that inhabited the depths of what is known today as Lake Champlain. Reported sightings of the enormous lake monster were so prevalent during the 19th century that showman P.T. Barnum in 1873 offered a reward of $50,000 for the “hide of the great Champlain serpent.” The lake monster affectionately known as “Champ” might be imaginary, but a very real Vermont state law has made it a protected species.
