Saxtons River Bell Ringers
Holiday Concert
Thursday December 4th @ 7:00 pm
Martin Hall

Come hear handbell musicians play holiday favorites at Martin Memorial Hall, 5259 Route 5 in Ascutney, VT. 


 Unlike an orchestra or choir in which each musician is responsible for one line of the texture, a bell ensemble acts as one instrument, with each musician responsible for particular notes, sounding his or her assigned bells whenever that note appears in the music. This concert is free and for all ages thanks to the Friends of the Weathersfield Proctor Library. For more information about handbells please visit http://handbellmusicians.org/. For information about the concert call 802.674.2863 or visitwww.weathersfieldproctorlibrary.org.


History of Vermont Agriculture
Thursday, November 13th at 6:30 pm

Former  VT Secretary of Agriculture, Roger Allbee will give a presentation on the History of Vermont Agriculture from 1776 to the present, with special attention paid to the Weathersfield area. Growing up on a small hillside farm in Southern Vermont, agriculture became Roger's lifelong passion. Since those early days he has worked in many areas of agriculture including policy, issues, trade, development, value added, credit, local and regional foods, and history. Roger shares his passion for the history of VT agriculture on his blog Whatceresmightsay.blogspot.com  

The Upper Valley One Card is Here!


The OneCard is a project of Upper Valley Vermont libraries to allow patrons to use one card to borrow from any participating library.  Each library has its own policies on borrowing, and patrons will be responsible for following these policies at each library.  If you are a Weathersfield Proctor Library card holder for at least 6 months and your account is in good standing, you may come to the library and we will place a "OneCard" sticker on your library card. This will identify you as a OneCard patron at all participating libraries.  With your OneCard you may borrow items from these libraries of the Upper Valley:

Bradford Public Library
Chelsea Public Library
Blake Memorial Library
Fairlee Public Library
Hartford Library
Hartland Public Library
Norwich Public Library
Quechee Library
Weathersfield Proctor Library
Wilder Library
Windsor Public Library

As a OneCard patron you will be responsible for returning your items to the library where the items were checked out.  Now you can visit any of these 11 participating libraries and check out items!  Come in and get your OneCard sticker and brochure that lists all of the participating libraries and their hours.


November is National Novel Writing Month!

The Weathersfield Proctor Library invites you to come to the library on Saturday November 1 between 9:00 and 5:00 pm and on Friday November 21 between 6:00 - 8:00 pm to write.  Bring your laptop, your pen, pencil and paper or other writing instruments and just begin! Bring a floor cushion, use a public computer station or sit at our table. Many people use this month to join along with other writers on the NaNoWriMo website and challenge themselves to write 50,000 words during the month of November.

Look for other opportunities to hang out with writers and write at local bookstores and libraries.  Many will be posted in the Vermont forum on the NaNoWriMo website.  What are plot bunnies and plot ninjas?  Find out this and more when you connect with fellow WriMos online or in person at a write in.  Put away your internal critic and editor and just write. What if you don't make the 50,000 word challenge?  What if you only write 20,000 words or 10,000 words or 2,000 words?  Well, that will be more words than you wrote on October 31, and who knows where those words will lead you?

Congratulations Jordan and the Children's Room!

Jordan received a scholarship to attend the  19th annual Red Clover Conference and Children's Picture Book Award Ceremony in Fairlee, VT on October 8, 2014.  She learned new skills and came back with some great ideas for early literacy programming for children.  AND she also won a full set of the Red Clover Award nominated books - all 10!  We are busy processing and adding these books to the library catalog, but they are ready for your requests now.
