Our Mission

The Morristown Centennial Library’s mission is to further our community’s commitment to literacy and broad public access to information, sharing the advantages and joys of reading and lifelong learning with as many members of our community as possible. To achieve this mission the library is dedicated to providing a comfortable and welcoming environment, offering high quality services and programs that are responsive to our community's wants and needs and honoring patrons' rights to privacy, confidentiality and intellectual freedom.

Current and Coming Events

Our new automation system is in place, new cards are being distributed to all patrons. When you come to the library, please take the time to fill out a form if you have not done so already.

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

National Novel Writing Month

Hello, Morristown and surrounding communities. We know there are writers out there with brilliant stories ready to be told…so TELL THEM! Who knows whose novel could be the Next Big Thing? We want to hear from you.

November is National Novel Writing Month. We at the Morristown Centennial Library are offering some NaNoWriMo opportunities designed to spur you on to literary greatness…or at least urge you to get your work down on paper.

The culminating event will be on Monday, December 1st, 6:00 PM. We’ll be hosting NaNoWriMo Author Night, in which we are asking you to be one of 20 authors to SIGN UP to read 5 minutes of your work to your writerly audience, with accompanying refreshments, applause and local acclaim. Join us. Register today!

November 15th is the midway point between “start your novel” and “read from your finished work,” so that day, Saturday November 15th from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM we will have a clean uncluttered space, simple tables and chairs and peace and quiet. Bring your laptop, tablet, notebook or whatever you use to write, and sit in solidarity with your fellow scribes for an afternoon Write-In.

For those of you night owls who couldn’t make it on Saturday, we’ll offer the space again on Tuesday, November 18th, 5:30-7:30 PM. This is your chance to sit, think, be inspired and write it down.

And we hope to see ALL of you on the evening of December 1st for NaNoWriMo Author Night. Call, stop by or email us at to sign up to be one of the 20 authors to read 5 minutes’ worth of your work. Be creative! Be eloquent! Be brave! We’ll meet you at the library.

Mark your calendars! Sue Mehrtens continues her successful book group, now called Saturday Morning Book Club continuing December 6th 2014 thru May 2nd, 2015. The group will meet every first Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 noon. The book for discussion December 6th is "Conversation with God Book 1" by Walsch.

Easy Chair Yoga is weekly on Thursday. The one hour sessions take place at 10:15 a.m. and there is no charge.

Did you miss one of the library's events?  A few are available on YouTube.  Francis Favreau's slideshow on the history of Morristown and the presentation by Archer Mayor, author of the Detective Joe Gunther series which uses a backdrop of Brattleboro, VT at the Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro.

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.
