Dorothy Alling Memorial Library, your home for lifelong learning
Please help us evaluate and improve our services by taking our library survey. This survey is a follow up to our strategic plan survey last year. It is confidential and all questions are optional, so you are free to skip any questions that you do not want to answer or that do not apply to you. We expect the survey to take about 10 minutes. You must be at least 14 years old to participate. Thank you so much for your support!

Our next discussion will be on July 28th at 6:30 pm with Laurel Sanborn of the Vermont Family Network. Laurel has a family member with a condition similar to Auggie's (main character in the book). Discussion will focus on family issues raised in the book. All ages are welcome. Books are available at the front circulation desk.

Submissions to the art show must be delivered to the library by August 6th. Entrants will be entered into a $50 Majestic prize drawing (Williston and St. George patrons only). A movie will be shown after the showcase. It is rated PG-13 (please call for title).
