Pie For Breakfast

The trustees at the Middletown Springs Public Library have discovered a sure cure for the Wintertime Blues… Pie for Breakfast.

On Saturday, March 7, 2014, from 8am-11am, they will be serving up All You Can Eat PIE For Breakfast with tea, coffee, or juice. The slices are cut thin so it is easy to try many different varieties. Pies are both sweet (such as pumpkin, apple, berry, chocolate…) and savory (such as quiche, spinach, ham…).

Location: the Middletown Springs Historical Society building on the green in Middletown Springs. The event is so popular that it has outgrown the library.

$7 for adults; $4 for children 5-12, under 5 FREE. All proceeds benefits the Middletown Springs Public Library.

Library Lawn Sale … April 28, 2012

Library Lawn Sale

Saturday April 28, 2012

8am-Noon

     Library services are increasingly in demand.  This is true across the country, across the county, and in small villages such as Middletown Springs, where the trustees and volunteers continue to expand their efforts to raise the funds needed to support those library services.  In March, they served up the deliciously successful Pie-For-Breakfast.  On Saturday, April 28, 2012, they will host a Library Lawn Sale; a Rummage Sale of up-cycled trinkets and treasures.  Town residents are de-cluttering their own homes to help raise money to make more room at the tiny library.  

     All proceeds of the sale will go to the library’s newly established Building Fund.  This fund holds monies to be used in the maintenance and expansion of the library in its current home, a renovated historic chapel, or in any future location.  Library trustees promise great bargains on housewares, tools, toys, and more. 

     For more information call the library at 802-235-2435.

1 Summer, 1 Town, 800 Books!!

This is the goal. Can library patrons in this town read 800 books this summer? I think so.
As you read, keep track of the number of books you finish. Stop in the library periodically to add your number to our chart.
Are you reading to a child this summer? Those books count. Both you and the child can sign up. The books count once towards our total.
At the end of the summer, we will have a celebration of all the reading that was done in 1 Summer by 1 Town….
Join us.
