Northern Stage Comes to the Libraries

Northern Stage is collaborating with six Upper Valley Libraries to bring workshops, scripts and complimentary tickets to us.  In advance of upcoming productions, enjoy a workshop with directors and actors, borrow the scripts, and receive complimentary ticket vouchers while supplies last.   Mark calendars for Tues., Sept. 23 at noon at the Wilder Club and Library and meet a director and actor  who will talk about  Into the Woods, the play that begins this season with Brothers Grimm characters who must deal with the consequences of their  wishes and quests. The series is made possible with the support of the Vermont Community Foundation.  Mark calendars now for Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. for a similar discussion at Quechee Library in advance of Orwell’s America.

Sci Fi Book Discussion

Nick Clemens, technical services librarian, is offering a new library book discussion series this fall.  The first meeting will be Monday, Sept. 22 at 6 pm at the Quechee Library.  The focus will be on the multiple award winning novel, Ancillary Justice.  Copies are available for borrowing.  If no time to read or finish, come anyway and help to shape this new discussion group.

Tea Theatre

Tuesday, Sept. 23 @ 3pm – Quechee Library

Join Christina Reynolds and Charlotte Merrill for a discussion, refreshments and the showing on the big screen of a  film classic.   Jane Fonda in a dance marathon during Depression-era America is directed by Sydney Pollack.  It was a bizarre and sometimes a heartbreaking fad.

VOKAL & What that means for Catalog Use

In April  the Quechee/Wilder Libraries become one of nearly 50 Vermont libraries in the VOKAL consortium, sharing a catalog and circulation system called Koha.

All libraries in our town of Hartford will now be on the same system and all residents can more readily access all the collections, use their patron cards at any Hartford Library and/or request that books be brought from one site to another. The easiest way to initiate these transfers as well as regular inter-library loan requests and reserves is to simply use the familiar online shopping method : a cart! Access your patron account, search for a title, click the “add to cart” link. When your cart is ready, click on the green cart button and then hit “send”. For details on this process, stop in for a new Digital Resources guide sheet or email us at info@quecheelibrary to have one sent.

An advantage of VOKAL is that patrons can see items from all the member libraries. Remember that the staff can still borrow for you from all Vermont libraries; continue to just ask for what you don’t see. Search QW Libraries first and always click on the title to see availability and locations. Remember too that titles come in various editions and there is no particular order. Scrolling to find the local copies will always speed things along. For full instructions on catalog and digital resources use, click here

Upper Valley Co-op for Library Service

The Quechee/ Wilder  Libraries will deliver your book requests to the pickup box located in the café area.  Email info@quecheelibrary.org for such requests. You can return books 24 hours a day 7 days a week using the drop box outside the Co-op entrance, or at either library. Membership applications available at the pick-up box</br>The Upper Valley Food Co-op and the Quechee Library are pleased to be working together to help you find the information you need and bring services directly to you in WRJ.

Two additional public libraries in the Town of Hartford are located in the villages of Hartford and West Hartford on Route 14. The West Hartford Library is currently closed, following severe flooding during Tropical Storm Irene. All Hartford Libraries are now part of VOKAL, a consortium of 50 Vermont Libraries with a shared catalog and circulation system. Hartford residents can visit any of their town's libraries, use online resources and borrow items. To place holds on a library other than the home library, contact a librarian. Public computers and wireless access are available. For more information, stop in, call or email.
