To my Dear Patrons,
Every day, we are hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel and get the news that we can reopen to better serve you. It has been great hearing from so many of you and being able to give out bags of books and movies.
You may wonder what Donna and I have been up to since you saw us last:
We have done a deep clean of the library, and an inventory. Donna finished painting all of the trim and it looks fantastic.
I have been learning all about distance teaching and making sure that all CTES students have plenty to read, as well as doing daily story times on Facebook and weekly story times on Okemo Public Access TV.
I am pleased to say we have increased our online offerings by adding such products as "Hoopla" and Junior Library Guild online for those who enjoy streaming movies and television.
Along with as many outreach services as we can provide, we have continued to add to our physical collection in preparation of circulating materials.
I want to thank all of our patrons for hanging in there. You are all essential to us. I hope to have news soon about a resumption of circulation services.
Director, Cavendish Fletcher Community Library
Welcome to the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library!
We were formed through a grassroots effort in 1990 replacing two smaller libraries and giving the Cavendish Town Elementary School a school library for the first time.
The Cavendish Fletcher Community Library serves as both the town and school library for Cavendish and Proctorsville, which allows a small town to have a full-time library during the school year. Library classes for CTES students are taught in the morning Monday-Friday. The Library opens to town patrons each day at noon.
The library contains approximately 14,000 items including books, movies, audio books and over 30 periodical subscriptions. We have four computers available for patron use and provide free Wi-Fi.
The library serves the community with several programs including after school children's programming, a summer reading program, and an adult book club.
