With our new automation system, Catamount Koha, automatic email notices are generated for materials on loan from the library. Some patrons emails have been returned as undeliverable. Some email accounts have stops on automatically generated email notices. Please check to see if this is the case. If it is, would you add us to your contacts so you will get these notices?

Thank you,
The Staff

Our Motto


"Preserving the Past -- Building the Future" continues to be our guide. The core collection, including the Vermont and Civil War Collections, maintain our links to the past, while computers, Internet access, Listen Up! Vermont (audio books and ebooks), Vermont Online Library (reference services), Universal Classes (online courses) and the purchase of new materials guarantee our growth into the future. The community has acquired an outstanding asset available to all. Come and take advantage of its many offerings.

FOR ADULTS

  • RockwellBuddy Edgerton to Reveal “The Unknown Rockwell” at Morristown Centennial Library—DATE POSTPONED. Due to a death in the family, Mr. Edgerton could not be with us on September 5th, but he will reschedule his visit soon. Here’s what he will discuss: Buddy Edgerton and his son Jim will present a program based on Buddy’s book, The Unknown Rockwell—A Portrait of Two American Families at Morristown Centennial Library, new date TBA. Buddy will relate real-life anecdotes from his stint as artist Norman Rockwell’s model, neighbor and family friend. Here’s the back story: The Edgertons and Rockwells were next door neighbors in West Arlington, Vermont in the 1940s. Many times Edgerton and family members posed as models for Norman Rockwell’s paintings. Edgerton provides colorful explanations and details of the pictures in the book, which range from family portraits to modeling photos and illustrations for paintings. Appreciate the first-person memories of a man whose young likeness aided in the creation of iconic American images recognizable even today. Reflect on the values that shaped Vermont, America and the world seventy years ago, rich with family life lived with good humor that withstands the march of time. This program will be free, open to the public and is accessible by persons with disabilities. There will be copies of the book available after the presentation. Look for the new date announcement and join us at the Morristown Centennial Library for this one-of-a-kind event featuring one of Vermont’s celebrities.

  • Deanna French and Tom Ledoux will present their latest work, Spunky Lamoille’s Boys in Blue Too! Out of the Woodwork on September 26th, 2:30 PM. In this second volume, more letters from the front detail the love of family, the dedication of doctors, the horrors of prison, the hope of a new Capitol and the grit and spunkiness of our men and women who served (yes, women too!). Join us to hear in person what our local historians’ painstaking care and labor of love has revealed afresh about this pivotal time in our state’s and our nation’s history.
