In this difficult April when we cannot meet at the library, we find ourselves communicating in electronic ways that continue our friendships and shared interests. Thanks to Gail Fancher for sending us this:
Needle Circle United
Neuroscientist, advocate, educator, fiber arts professional, financial guru, dietician, mothers, sisters, and physician join in a circle, women of education and positions of power, pick up their needles and join as one to weave their arts.
When they sit and stitch, they blend their lives together. They celebrate the friendship they have created, collaborate resources they can share with each other.
Unseen shimmering golden threads weave in and out of each other’s life tapestry.
Oh for a glimpse in the ethereal realm. What a work of art!
Support of the library is essential. Donations may be made to the annual appeals of the Friends and/or the Trustees as well as the Paypal link here. Gifts made in the name of another are gratefully acknowledged in the donor’s name.
The Friends of the Quechee Library are integral to the vitality of this community facility. Led by an active Steering Committee, the Friends support the library in several enriching ways. An annual appeal is made each May in conjunction with an annual meeting, election of offices, and a special program. All Friends are invited to attend the monthly steering committee meetings, generally held on the second Wednesday of each month at 11 a.m.
Friends are the primary source of the volunteers who staff the circulation desk, and also perform many other tasks at the Library. They maintain a selection of gifts, including notecards, tote bags, and coverlets. Work by local artists is often featured for gift items. Current officers are: Jo Allsopp and Ann DeLoach, co-presidents; Carol Heavisides, vice president; Joan Baret, secretary; Liza Steinberg. treasurer.
Prints are available for purchase for $195 of this Quechee village scene painted by watercolor artist Susan Pecora. Made possible by a gift from Gladys Sullivan, the painting is on display at the library.
For over 20 years a booksale held in conjunction with the Quechee Balloon Festival has provided support for the library. Each year it is held over Father’s Day weekend as an important fundraiser. Donations of books and volunteers are essential. A minimized booksale is ongoing throughout the year and put on full display again during fall foliage season. The library benefits from not only the funds but also from donated items that are added to the collections. Please, however, donate only books in good condition as there is a cost to the library to remove those that cannot be sold.
We gladly accept your support in any form, whether in volunteer service, book donations, or monetary contributions.
