our gem in central Vermont

UPDATE - Berlin decided to support the Kellogg-Hubbard Library again this year!! If you're a Berlin resident and haven't yet signed up for your library card, please do and enjoy all the benefits of being a member of this wonderful resource.

"Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries"

Each and every vote counts, please get out and vote!

Kellogg-Hubbard Library needs you as much as you need it!

These are difficult and uncertain times for everyone. The national media is filled with reports of people flocking to libraries in unprecedented numbers as they can no longer afford to buy books, computers, or have a high-speed Internet connection to help with a job search. Please vote yes for library funding on Town Meeting Day. The Library Board has kept its pledge to ask for no more than the cost of living for the next four years. This year's request is 1.8% under the cost of living. Please help make sure that the library's doors remain open to all who rely on it.

These are our funding requests for each town meeting. We have included last year’s requested amount, this year’s requested amount and the difference between each amount. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Daniel Pudvah, Executive Director at 223-3338.
