Please join us at the Wells Village Library for our exciting summer program, “Build a Better World.” Each week will incorporate a different theme with a story, craft, physical activity, and a snack. We will have a program each Thursday day from June 29, 2017, through August 17, 2017; there will be no program on July 6th. The program is from 3:30p-4:30p. Most of the themes will be science-based and literacy-based with hands on learning opportunities. Suggestions for books to support the theme and ideas for parents will be available each week. Our library is located at 5 East Wells Road, Wells, VT 05774. Please visit our website (wellslibrary.com), or call Joy or Erin at 802-645-0611 with questions.

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!
WELLS VILLAGE LIBRARY BOOK CLUB
Our next book club is on July 26, 2017, at 1pm.
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. Check our website for more information.
ARM CHAIR TRAVEL
Another program at the library is called Arm Chair Travel where we will have guests who have traveled to different countries and who are willing to share stories and photos about thier travels and give us a bird's eye view of the beauty of our world.
We have already 'traveled' to Novia Scotia, Vietnam, Italy, Ireland, Korea and Australia! Please check back for dates and times. We look forward to seeing you there.
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 to express an interest you may have, and we will try to schedule things in which people express as interest.
