Anyone can join; just let the center or the library know if you would like a copy of the book being read and discussed. Wonder is the Vermont Reads 2014 selection.

Meeting on the first Monday of every month at 4 p.m. at Quechee Library, this popular discussion group will focus on mysteries by Bill Prozini for the April 7 date. Many titles are in the display case, available for borrowing.
The Quechee and Wilder Libraries gratefully received donations from the White River Rotary Club’s Community Service Projects program. The Quechee Library /Rotary project this year will be an expansion of the juvenile CD and DVD Collection with improved shelving space. The juvenile collection accounts for over half of our circulation of 43,000 items annually to Hartford residents. We have received many requests that this part of the collection be expanded and the Rotary funds make this possible. The Wilder Club and Library gratefully accepts funds for the completion of the restoration of the war memorial, a project that Rotary has supported in the past. Stop by both libraries and enjoy these community-wide efforts.
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
