Fall Book Sale!

The Friends Fall Book Sale opened on November 25th, and all remaining items can now be purchased either by donation or for free to those who need them. Stop by for some lovely holiday gifts for yourself and others. The items on sale are still neatly sorted, and you’ll find not only fine books but DVDs, music CDs, and audiobooks.

The Friends’ book sales support many library services — lifelong learning programs, children’s activities, digital resources, etc. You can help support all these by shopping at the Friends’ book sales!

Basket Raffles

Treat yourself or your friends to one of the many book-themed baskets created by the Friends of the Library (a few of which are pictured above). Raffle tickets are available at the front desk for $2, or 3 for $5. The drawing will be held Wednesday, December 21st, at 3:00pm, and winners will be notified as soon as possible after the drawing.

1st Wednesdays

The popular First Wednesdays series, free and open to the public, is back for another season. The lectures are held on the first Wednesday of the month, October through May, at 7PM – see the flyer here. This season the programs will be held in the Main Reading Room of the library, with the exception of the March lecture, accessible via Zoom (click here to register).

The series is sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council, the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library, and the following generous local businesses: Berkley & Veller Greenwood Country Realtors, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, Champion Overhead Door, Richards Insurance Group, Swiss Precision Turning, Vermont Country Store, Viking Villages, Zaluzny Excavating Corp., and Ziter Taylor Real Estate. The support of our local businesses is greatly appreciated!

  • Libraries are for everyone.
