Welcome to the Cavendish Fletcher Community Library!

Our Story

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.  Currently, Library classes for CTES are taught on Mondays and Fridays and the library is open to the public Tuesday, Wendesday, Thursday and Saturdays.  

The library contains approximately 14,000 items including books, movies, audio books and over 30 periodical subscriptions. We have computers available for patron use and provide free Wi-Fi, inside and outside of the building.

The library serves the community with several programs including after school children's programming, a summer reading program, and an adult book club.
