Time to mask up
Due to the increase in COVID cases, the CDC has issued new masking recommendations. As our policy throughout the pandemic has been to follow their guidance, we are now asking all library patrons, vaccinated and unvaccinated, to wear masks indoors. As always, we appreciate your commitment to keeping our community safe.

Kindergarten cards
A new kindergartner in your house? We’d love to welcome them to the library with their very own library card. Stop by the library during open hours to sign up. Ask for your bookmark and sticker set, too!

Climate change action
The latest UN report on climate change urges us all to take action. Thanks to 350.org, you can add your voice asking the Vermont Climate Council for a “Just Transition Climate Plan.” Postcards are available at the library circulation desk to fill out. You can leave finished postcards at the library for delivery by 350.org. Need more information? Check out their website.

Mystery Book Group: Henrietta Who?
Monday, Aug. 16, at 10 a.m.
Early one morning in the quiet English village of Larking, the body of a woman named Mrs. Jenkins is found in the road. Miles away, her daughter, Henrietta, receives the bad news while working in the university library. Poor Mrs. Jenkins appears to have been the victim of a horrible car accident. When an autopsy proves not only that this was no accident, but also that Mrs. Jenkins never had a child, young Henrietta’s life is thrown upside down. If she’s not Mrs. Jenkins’s daughter, then who is she? It’s up to Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan of the Calleshire Police Force to bring the murderer to justice—and a sense of order back to Henrietta’s life. Copies are available at the circulation desk.
