It’s time for…Back to School!

With the beginning of school just around the corner, this is a challenging time for many families. While there isn’t a handbook for functioning during a pandemic, we’ve compiled a few resources herein that might be helpful for surviving ‘back to school.’

And, we’ve added a new Back to School Resources page for parents and students!


Here’s a great article recently published by The New York Times offering tips for teens — beneficial to many of us, really — during this strange time.

Check out this article featuring fun ideas for creating special back-to-school moments to this time of year.

In This Moment

Wilder Memorial Library shares the nation’s anger, sadness, frustration, and heartbreak over the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the epidemic of violent acts perpetrated against Blacks and people of color across our nation.  Many of us are grasping to make sense, to understand, to take action, and to educate ourselves for a brighter future.

While people around the world are marching against racism, they’re also reading about it. For this reason, we’ve created a brand new web page, Black Lives, Black Voices, with a list of books — available as audiobooks or downloadable books via Overdrive / Green Mountain Library Consortium (just use your library card to sign in) — as well as videos, podcasts, and articles, that we’ve curated for you – for all ages!

Jessica Clapp – Library Director

The Board of Trustees of the Wilder Memorial Library is pleased to announce that Jessica Clapp has accepted the position of Director of the Library and that Christine Mix has accepted the newly-created position of Assistant Librarian. Most of you probably already know Jessica and Christine as they have been acting as co-interim library directors since December when Randall Szott departed to pursue his career as a state legislator from Barnard. The Board is delighted that the two have agreed to continue to work together for the benefit of the Library and our community. Both Jessica and Christine are honored to be accepting their positions.
