Youth Services

These new titles which focus on diversity, equity & inclusivity are now available in the children’s room thanks to a generous grant from the Building Bright Future organization; a division of the Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council. It is grants such as these that help us provide enriching materials to our patrons. We cannot thank you enough.

Meet our new Youth Services Librarian

Greetings Pope Memorial Library community! I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself; my name is Christine Slater and I am so pleased to join your library as the new Youth Services Librarian. I would like to invite you to join me this Wednesday, January 4th at 10:30am for a fun story time featuring a hilarious Llama! It’s one of my absolute favorites and I’m sure your kiddos will love it!

Storytime is open to all ages but geared towards our younger demographic. We will learn a little about real life Llamas while we have a light snack and coloring as well. I hope to see lots of little faces! 🤓🦙📖
