Upcoming Events at the Library for Fall 2018

Help us celebrate Banned Books Week from September 23rd through September 29th!  We will have a display of books people have attempted to ban over the years.  Come see what some of them are and find out how what is protected under the First Amendment has broadened over the years.  Some of the titles may surprise you!  On Wednesday, September 26th from 1p-3p, we will view the movie, The Great Gatsby.  On Saturday, September 29th from 1p-3p, we will watch a Harry Potter film.

In October, we have some events planned to celebrate Halloween.  On Friday, October 19th from 7p-9p, please join us to watch a horror movie.  On Wednesday, October 31st, we are continuing the tradition of trick-or-treating at the library from 5p-7:30p; the ice cream truck will also be here.

Thanks to the community and the MWA for all your help with Wells Village Library Book & Bake Sale in in July 2017.  It was very successful.  Please come see of the new books and programs will develop with these skills.




The Wells Village Library is pleased to announce some new programs and opportunities!


Everyone is welcomed to join us even if you can only come occasionally!

The Book Club typically meets at the library the fourth Wednesday of the month at 1pm.  However, occasionally these dates change due to inclement weather, holidays, or the schedules of the authors.  Please call or check the website for changes.  Joy Brewster is the moderator.

Occasionally we will invite local authors to our meetings to discuss their book.  Please call us at 802-645-0611, or email us at, with questions.

The Lights of Wells Program takes place in December on the village green in front of the library.  It is a beautiful, heartwarming community event which includes both churches.  The library will be decorated with books and items celebrating the many ways people enjoy the holiday seasons.  People are invited to enjoy the cookies and cocoa in the library.  The horse drawn wagon rides and the arrival of Santa to light the tree will add to the magic of the evening.  Our thanks to all the community groups who help make the evening memorable.

Wells Village Parents, Teachers, and Faculty from Wells Village School or Other Local Communities 

Come join us at the Wells Village Library to gain a better understanding of the Common Core State Standards, PLP's, and IEP's.   

We are also interested in any thoughts from patrons about workshops or learning sessions in which they may have an interest.  Our patrons have diverse, varied, and fascinating interests and pastimes they may enjoy sharing, e.g. local and Vermont history, education law, applied behavior analysis, beautiful arts and crafts, dancing, quilting, cooking, photography, genealogy, local villians, ghost stories, gravestone rubbings, equine behavior, community service, travel, science, mathematics, computers, Native American teachings, and horticulture, just to name a few.  Please call Erin or Joy at 802-645-0611 or email us at, to express an interest you may have, and we will try to schedule things in which people express as interest.  

During the summer of 2018, the Wells Village Library plans to provide free park passes to many Vermont State parks and historic sites.

The passes allow one to gain entrance to most day use areas and historic sites. Stop in to borrow a pass for a period of three days. As a library card holder, you can receive free entry for up to eight people in one vehicle.
