Vermont Beer! The Book & The Beverage
Join us July 1st (that's tonight!) starting at 7:00 pm at Three Penny Taproom for a book launch for Vermont Beer: History of a Brewing Revolution.

Where's Waldo?
Waldo is back hiding in Montpelier for another July Where's Waldo? search. Come by the Children's Room for a passport, then search for Waldo and his dog Woof at 20 participating downtown businesses. Return your completed sheet of where you found Waldo at the store or Kellogg-Hubbard Library by the end of the month to be entered into a raffle for many Waldo-related prizes.


New Releases

Read this Book: Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?
On the face of it, a graphic memoir about dealing with aging parents doesn't sound like a great idea. But if you add "by Roz Chast" it becomes a brilliant idea. Bringing her trademark wit and insight we love in New Yorker cartoons, Chast tells the brutally honest, sometimes sad and often funny story of her parents' final years. What could have been a depressing story of idiosyncratic parents is lifted by Chast's wonderfully quirky illustrations, a few family photos and poignant observations. By the end, I just wanted to give Roz a big hug. The New York Times said "it veers between being laugh-out-loud funny and so devastating I had to take periodic timeouts."
