Fun at the library!

Autumn story times start on Thursday, September 19th and Monday, September, 23rd at 10:30am.

The One World Library Project has a beautiful red book shelf downstairs filled with books and movies that bring stories of other peoples and lands to us in the comfort of our own homes.

The Books for Babies program welcomes each new baby born in the Bristol community with a picture book. New parents may choose the book they would like in honor of their child’s birth. For years after, as the babies grow, the book remains in the library with a bookplate containing the child’s name. Independent readers are delighted when they find “their” book or the books of their friends on the shelf years later. This program is funded by local donations.

The library was a busy place this summer – congratulations to the many readers and all who participated in summer programs. Continue visiting us into the new school year and meet up with friends, read, do art, and play. See you soon

We have an audio center for the kids with a CD player and a good, old-fashioned cassette player with headphones for them to listen to. Although we no longer have cassettes to loan out, we do have a considerable selection of audio book CDs downstairs for preschoolers through 8th graders. Teens and adults can find a selection for them upstairs.


We also have the nature exploration kit with aquatic nets, guide books, bug houses and more available to borrow.  Works for regular bugs too!

 An organization dedicated to promoting early literacy and future school success.

 They are a sponsor of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a program that sends a book each month to the home of each registered child (birth through five years of age) at no cost to the family. Children of different ages receive different titles; the books are carefully selected and are for the children to keep.



The Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award was created to honor excellence in children’s literature. Each year since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of 30 nominees. It is recommended that students read at least five of the year’s nominated titles before voting.


Here is a checklist to keep track of the ones that you have read.
