Passport to Vermont Libraries begins June 1st


The Springfield Town Library is pleased to once again participate in the Vermont Library Association's Passport to Vermont Libraries.   This is the second year that VLA is running the Passport program.   One of our patrons visited 59 libraries last summer and became the 2015 Statewide Young Adult Winner!

Passport to Vermont Libraries will run from June 1st to September 1st.   Passports will be available at the front desk.  Local libraries will offer passport stamps and small prizes.   Three patrons statewide (adult, young adult, child) will receive Vermont Library Ambassador awards and prizes for visiting the most libraries.   

Explore some of Vermont's unique, beautiful and creative libraries this summer!

Future of the Written Word


A Vermont Humanities Council event

 Thursday, April 28th

The world’s 6,000 languages are written in fewer than 100 alphabets, one third of which are in danger of extinction.  Writer/carver/painter Tim Brookes, founded the Endangered Alphabet Project as a way to draw attention to this issue and help preserve these amazingly beautiful scripts and the vitally important cultural diversity that they represent.   Tim Brookes is a graduate of Pembroke College Oxford and is now the director of the Professional Writing Program at Champlain College.   Please join us for this special Vermont Humanities Council event!
