Fine Forgiveness Month
As a gift from all of us at the library all overdue books or other materials that are returned to the Goodrich Memorial Library from December 11, 2017 through January 6, 2018 will be exempt from fines. Now is the time to return any library materials you may have overlooked around the house without a penalty. This also saves us the expense of replacing books, CDs, DVDs, or magazines and for that we are grateful.
This eclectic lecture series is offered through the Vermont Humanities Council, with events scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month, October through May. Topics are varied, timely, timeless, thought-provoking, and fun. All First Wednesdays talks are free and open to the public, and are held at libraries and other venues in each host community.

December 21, 2017: The Christmas Train by David Baldacci
One of America’s most critically acclaimed storytellers, David Baldacci has enthralled millions with his popular novels. Showcasing his remarkable versatility, Baldacci gift-wraps a beloved holiday classic…
Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington, D.C., to L.A. in time for Christmas. Forced to travel by train, he begins a journey of rude awakenings, thrilling adventures, and holiday magic. He has no idea that the locomotives pulling him across America will actually take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart, as he rediscovers people’s essential goodness and someone very special he believed he had lost.
David Baldacci’s THE CHRISTMAS TRAIN is filled with memorable characters who have packed their bags with as much wisdom as mischief…and shows how we do get second chances to fulfill our deepest hopes and dreams, especially during this season of miracles.
Join us on Tuesday mornings at 11:00 for story time at the library! Drop by the children’s room for stories and crafts.
