Dear Enosburgh Public Library Community and Friends,
The Enosburgh Public Library will close at 5:00 p.m. today, Friday November 20th and resume service at the door or call ahead for curbside service. We do not take this decision lightly. As per the Governors Executive Order this is the decision the Enosburgh Public Library Board of Trustees and myself have come to for the safety of our community and staff of the library.
A staff member will be in the library working 9-5 Monday thru Friday to answer phone calls, email, messages and to assist with Home Delivery to our Enosburgh residents. If you know of some materials you would like to check out, just call the library @ 802-922-2328, email us at [email protected] or FB message us, and we will bag up the items and arrange a time to drop them off to you or you can pick them up outside the library. Please ring the doorbell and a librarian will come to the door and help you with anything you might need! This service includes photocopying, faxing and Inter-Library Loan. We look forward to seeing you!
Stay tuned daily for links and ideas for activities to do at home and of course our virtual programs.

The cultivation of maple in Vermont began with the region's original inhabitants, the Abenaki. They were the first to recognize sugar maple sap was sweet and could be refined into sugar or syrup. They were also the first to experiment with various technologies for collecting that sap.

Birch bark is a remarkably pliable material and, in this case, was folded to make a water-tight container called a "quick basket" used to collect sap.
This sap bucket is part of our virtual exhibit, Innovation in Vermont"

In 1968-69 or 1969-70, while I was teaching Home Economics at Enosburg High School, I organized a group of women who sewed band capes for the high school band. They were green cotton bark-cloth capes with a white "E" on the corner. They were worn with white pants and white shirt. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the band wearing them. I am looking for a couple to use in a book I am writing. Does anyone have one they will share? Thanks, in advance.
Can anyone tell me the name of the movie theater in Enosburg, approximately when it closed, owner(s)? Thanks.
Drop by to see the Enosburg Historical Society's operating Lionel and HO scale train setups upstairs over the Enosburg town clerks office (239 Main St) Saturday, September 21, 2019 (11:00 to 3 pm. )
We just received our Newsletter that we always enjoy. This issue was very bitter sweet upon learning that the beautiful old church at the center was coming down. I had so hoped at least one more time next summer being able to take pictures inside and out because our ADAMS-wRIGHTS-NICHOLS family were some of the early pioneers on the forefront of building that church. We have in our records the family pews they paid for every year. The beautiful old lights are one of my favorite memories. Is there any chance we could schedule just more visit before tearing this structure down? Just tell us when and we will be there with our families!
It would be great if you had a snail mail address posted on this site. I have a few photos I want to send.
