WANTED-Library Board of Trustee Member

The Weathersfield Proctor Library Board of Trustees is looking for a community member to serve on the Board to fill the position vacated by Jeanne Voorhees. Her elected term ends in March 2018 but the 'new' Trustee would be appointed by the Select Board to serve until the March 2016 Town Meeting. At that time the Trustee could run to fill out the remainder of the term.

The Trustees meet, typically, once a month-the third Thursday of the month-for about two hours. The number and hours increase during budget preparation for the March Town Meeting in late fall.

If you'd like to volunteer with the current Board of Trustees, please contact Ernie Shand, Chair.

WPL-Mold is Gone-Before and After Images #WeathersfieldVT #VT

Our Library is back in business!

Please Spread the Word!
On Wednesday, April 8 our library re-opened after an extensive mold removal project. The basement storage area was cleaned and all the potential mold spore carrying items were either disposed of or cleaned. Our basement is quite empty now.

The foundation around the building has been fortified to prevent further water damage. And the Trustees plan to install new gutters around the roof line to keep water away from the foundation.

Here are a few Before/After shots from the project.
Before







After








Anything that was cloth, paper or absorbent wood material had to be discarded. We had to discard ALL our supplies. Everything from paper goods to movie screens to pop-up tents. It's ALL GONE!

Farwell Party for Outgoing Library Director Nancy Tusinski

Thank You Nancy T!

Friday afternoon the Weathersfield Proctor Library Board of Trustees, Friends of Proctor Library and patrons said goodbye to Library Director Nancy Tusinski. Friday was her last day with us. She has accepted a librarian position in Rockingham/Bellows Falls.

Over the last three years Nancy T has taken our little library and brought it into the 21st century. She made everyone feel welcome and created an atmosphere of learning and adventure.
The Library has seen increases in library card holders, materials borrowed and attendance at programs. She hired and supervised an Assistant Librarian-Karin Fischer-who will take over as interim Library Director until a new Director is hired. And a Youth Services Librarian, Jordan Hutchinson.
Thanks to all the folks who volunteered to make refreshments for the party!
And a BIG THANK YOU to Nancy T-we will miss you!
