Take A Walk!
One of the many ways in which the Robert L. Crowell family has supported The Moore Free Library over the years has been the acquisition and gift to us of a seven-acre parcel of undeveloped land on South Wardsboro Road a short distance from the Library. The acreage, which serves as a wildlife sanctuary and teaching resource, is open to the community in all seasons free of charge. We invite you to walk or snowshoe on this lovely piece of Vermont landscape.
Friends of Moore Free Library
Notes from Jan Knowles, President, Friends of the Library The Friends October Book Sale went extremely well this year, with Teddi Tucci, Kirsten Krause, and Elsie Garbe doing a heroic job sorting and pricing the many books donated. In June the Friends took over the organization and running of the Townwide Tag Sale, with Julie Lavorgna heading up the effort. The occasion was a great success, raising almost $900, and we plan to repeat the event next year. The Friends recently purchased an air conditioner and new phones for the Library. (Thanks to Bobbe Ragouzeos for doing the legwork.) We plan to initiate some much-needed improvements in the near future, beginning with new flooring for the entry foyer. At our June meeting I was elected as president of the Friends. Teddi Tucci will serve as vice-president, and Ellie Lemire will continue as treasurer. We are still in need of a secretary. If anyone is interested, please call me at 348-7759.
