Holiday Book Talk 2011 Featured in Across the Fence

Victoria Tibbits of the Westford Public Library and Amy Howlett of the Vermont Department of Libraries review their favorite holiday books in Across the Fence.



Robin Sales of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library and Amy Howlett of the Vermont Department of Libraries reviewed books for National Library Week on the UVM Extension Service program "Across the Fence", April 11.

Here is a video of the staff shifting collections and the transformation of the fourth floor. Read the full story in our January 2011 newsletter:
