Erected in 1913, the Joslin Memorial Library was the gift of George A. Joslin, a Waitsfield man who made his fortune in the newspaper business in the West. The building, constructed at a cost of $21,387, is still one of the finest of its kind in the state. As you enter the building between the two imposing Indiana Bedford Limestone columns, notice the starburst windows over the door and the slate hip roof decorated with dentils. The entry is polished marble. The circulation desk is a fine example of woodworking and the handsome light fixtures are original. Of particular note is the stained glass skylight called an art-glass window.
We have a collection of approximately 9,000 books including best sellers, classics, a large children’s collection, Vermont materials, popular magazines, reference materials and more.
We also have computers and printers for public use, a copier with fax and scanning abilities and a friendly staff who loves meeting the people who come into our library!
