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.
Generally meeting on the first Friday of the month, at 12:45 p.m., join a book discussion group led by librarian Marieke Sperry. We next gather June 10 to discuss Anne-Marie O’Connor’s The Lady in Gold: The Extraordinary Tale of Gustav Klimt’s Masterpiece, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. In this novel, a masterfully told tale of suspense, readers will find a look at turn-of-the-century Vienna; a shimmering painting, a subject and a painter, with the fate of each forever intertwined. Copies are available for borrowing through the Quechee/Wilder Libraries. Let the Bugbee Center staff or either library know if you would like a copy of the current selection delivered to the Center. All are welcome!
