Vermont Reads 2015

 Q/W Libraries is again participating in  Vermont Reads, a statewide community reading program sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council.  With a grant of 50 copies of the 2015 selection, Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie, a series of multi-generation programs was developed.

Browse and read some of the many works by Salman Rushdie on display. Also available is the DVD of Midnight’s Children and the CD of the memoir Joseph Anton.

Rushdie is internationally acclaimed author and an ardent leader for free speech.  The witty parable, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, was written for his 11 year old son by Rushdie during the years of the fatwa issued after the publication of Satanic Verses. It  has since been loved by all ages for its word play, humor and allegory. Our scheduled discussions are done…but we encourage all to read and share this book with family, friends and community.   Enjoy the upcoming series on Vermont Public Radio, enjoy the additional resources at www.Vermont Reads 2015, and soon– an opportunity to participate in our libraries’ version of Storycorps.   Marieke will be available most Friday mornings to record stories with a friend or family member.  Email her at marieke@quecheelibrary.org. Let’s keep storytelling alive!

OneCard!

Onecard-patron

What: The OneCard is a project of Upper Valley Vermont libraries to allow patrons to use their home library card to borrow materials directly from any participating library.  Patrons receive the card according to home library requirements but are subject to borrowing regulations of loaning libraries.   Where:  Participating libraries are: Quechee, Wilder, Hartford, Hartland, Norwich, Fairlee, Bradford, Corinth, Chelsea, Windsor and Ascutney.         Who: Adult patrons (17 and over) of Quechee and Wilder Libraries with a minimum 3 month borrowing history in good standing.   How: Stop in at Q/W libraries to get the OneCard sticker for your library card. Show your library card at any of the participating libraries to check out materials from that library. Each library has its own policies about borrowing so make sure to ask before you check out. Continue to request interlibrary loan from the Q/W libraries and place your holds through us.
