We wish all a fine holiday with friends and family. The snow will cause early closing today and the libraries will also be closed for Thanksgiving. They will be open on Friday as usual. Indeed, a special Friday afternoon program for teens and pre-teens is described just below.
Whether at the Quechee Library or the reading room in the historic Wilder Clubhouse, patrons will find a coordinated library service. As new members of VOKAL, we invite you to enjoy browsing the larger catalogs and to contact us at email@example.com to request loans or with questions about QWLibraries OnLine resources. Find us as well in White River Jct. through the Upper Valley Co-op and the Bugbee Senior Center.

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. OneCard is ideal for patrons wishing to browse and pick up materials in person.
Where: Currently 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.
Why: Libraries like to share! OneCard gives participating libraries a chance to serve all our patrons better by providing a greater choice and availability of materials.
Questions or comments? We would love to hear from you. Call 802-295-1232 (Q) or 802-295-6341 (W), email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop in and speak with us in person.
