There are now only two “Little Free Libraries” remaining for sale and one to be raffled to benefit the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library.
The libraries are all hand-built by the Brattleboro Rotary Club’s Literacy Project Committee and painted by local artists Robert Craig Aldrich, Bob Cincotta, Pat Little, John McCarthy, Susan Rosano, Kim Stice and Suzy Worden.
Brooks Memorial Library is excited to host National Student Poet for the Northeast, Juliet Lubwama on Wednesday, April 11th, at 7 pm, in the Main Reading Room!
Lately I’ve been running into lots of examples in movies, stories, and books of sexual harrassment of women in show business. It’s just rampant. Of course, my media sources aren’t from the present day — the present day is too depressing. I’ve set the dial back to about the turn of the century through the 1930s. Now that I think of it, these too were depressing times. But depressing times call for entertainment—so bring on the show girls!
In spirit with the services that public libraries provide equally to all
who come, we received an excellent
this weekend! You can read it online with your library card:
The Board of Trustees for Brooks Memorial Library is looking for two new members to help guide this great community library!

On Wednesday, November 29 at 7 PM, Brooks Memorial Library will host a presentation about conmen who made their fortunes and furthered their careers by coming to Brattleboro and working their magic art. Rolf Parker, a free-lance writer and local historian, will tell their stories and share tips and techniques for doing your own research and story-telling. Come learn how your work can become part of the Peoples, Places and the History of Words Project! It is funded by an NEH “Creating Humanities Communities” grant.
