The Morristown Centennial Library’s mission is to further our community’s commitment to literacy and broad public access to information, sharing the advantages and joys of reading and lifelong learning with as many members of our community as possible. To achieve this mission the library is dedicated to providing a comfortable and welcoming environment, offering high quality services and programs that are responsive to our community's wants and needs and honoring patrons' rights to privacy, confidentiality and intellectual freedom.
Our new automation system is in place, new cards are being distributed to all patrons. When you come to the library, please take the time to fill out a form if you have not done so already.
With our new automation system, Catamount Koha, automatic email notices are generated for materials on loan
from the library. Some patrons emails have been returned as undeliverable. Some email accounts have stops on
automatically generated email notices. Please check to see if this is the case. If it is, would you add us to
your contacts so you will get these notices?
The Morristown Centennial Library is participating in Morrisville’s Festival of Lights with a Holiday Celebration for all ages on Saturday December 6 from 11:00-1:00. Drop in for ornament decorating, a reading of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, cookies and a festive sing-along.
Wrap It Up/Card Me, December 16th, from 5:00-7:30 PM. Leave the kids at home and bring your holiday gift wrap, past years’ cards, trimmings and those gifts you don’t want them to see for a paper/card swap- wrap- and-write night at the library. We’ll provide tape, scissors, pens and space. You provide your wrapping and writing skills and camaraderie…and here’s the caveat: ALL wrap and cards must please go home with you-- in your hands or someone else’s-- at the end of the night. Join us!
Warm Feet, Warm Hearts: Some of our senior neighbors could use some extra warmth this holiday season. For those who are served by Lamoille County Meals on Wheels, the library is teaming up with this vital agency to collect NEW, warm socks for men and women to be delivered with December meals. Why socks? Because many elders deal with poor circulation in their extremities, which makes it harder to regulate body temperature. As one wise grandmother used to observe, “If your feet are cold, everything’s cold.” Warm socks, in particular the sort with “forgiving” cuffs, are an important article of winter dress. Please consider donating a new pair of warm winter socks, in men’s or women’s sizes, to be put under our “Sock Tree” at the library. We’ll get them to MOW. Thank you.
Mark your calendars! Sue Mehrtens continues her successful book group, now called Saturday Morning Book Club continuing December 6th 2014 thru May 2nd, 2015. The group will meet every first Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 noon. The book for discussion December 6th is "Conversation with God Book 1" by Walsch.
Easy Chair Yoga is weekly on Thursday. The one hour sessions take place at 10:15 a.m. and there is no charge.
Did you miss one of the library's events? A few are available on YouTube. Francis Favreau's slideshow on the history of Morristown and the presentation by Archer Mayor, author of the Detective Joe Gunther series which uses a backdrop of Brattleboro, VT at the Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro.
