WELCOME to the TENNEY MEMORIAL LIBRARY

Greetings Bookworms!

APRIL is still POETRY MONTH! If you GOOGLE the publishers KNOPF and sign up, they will send you a poem a day for the month. It is a free service and they will not “bug” you with anything else.

Some poems may be familiar to you and some poems are “out there” and new, even to this old English teacher.

I hope you will try this site and enjoy the poetry.

      In brief, you can email or call and leave a message asking for books you wish to check out.  I will gather these, bag them & have them waiting for you outside the side door labeled with your name on Saturdays between 9:30 and 12:00.  (Leave in the bag for three days before accessing to make sure items are virus free.) I will also deliver in Newbury Village if you need to self quarantine.

The Front of the library is on the front of each shirt and on the back is the quote from Ciciero:

” IF YOU HAVE A GARDEN AND A LIBRARY< YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED>”

A very “Vermonty” quotation. The shirts are good quality and hold up well. They are $15.00 and help support our mission to support the needs of Newbury.

On the right hand side of this page are resources to help you download books and search your family roots.
