The Rutland Historical Society and the library have partnered to make selected years of the Rutland High School Yearbook from 1930-1993 (more coming!) available. Check it out by clicking on the title!
Click on the Kids Space tab to access TumbleBooks! Find animated, talking picture books with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, and Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration.)
We now have a pass for 2 adults and 2 children for the Billings Farm and Museum! Call or swing by the library to borrow it.
Rutland Film Society and Rutland Free Library present a second year of outstanding films and panel discussion. Every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7pm.
Reader’s Corner (which you can find in the left-hand menu, and the top menu) features all the resources you need about books in our library. There are links to InterLibrary Loan and a request form for new books and dvds. Check it out today!
We have passes available for Vermont State Parks, Historic Sites, and Echo Lake Aquarium and Science Center. Ask at the circulation desk or call for more information.
The Friends of the Library is an auxiliary group organized to “foster, encourage, sponsor and promote the perpetuation, improvement, and interest in the Rutland Free Library.” The Friends welcome new members at all times. Pick up a membership form at the circulation desk.
Meeting times are posted, usually the 2nd Monday of the month.
In addition, the Friends are currently recruiting new Board members. Notify the nominating committee (email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in serving on the board for a two-year commitment. Voting occurs at the annual meeting.
The Friends sponsor frequent book sales throughout the year as a fundraising event.
