Summer has arrived in Vermont and with the sunshine come many fun outdoor activities at the Whiting Library in Chester. You may have already noticed that every Saturday between 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. a pop-up library springs up on the front lawn, offering a themed selection of library books for you to browse and check out. The theme for July is beach reads, featuring a selection of books to take your mind on vacation or learn something fun this summer. We also bring out a portion of our book sale for this weekly pop-up event so you can buy books and support the library!
