The South Hero Library broke ground Saturday, July 21, at the site of our future home on Route 2. A huge “thank you” to the many people who came out to join us, and to those who participated as speakers, shovel bearers, musicians, photographers, and supporters in so many other ways. Judging by the smiles we witnessed, the ceremony and celebration were a huge success. We’ve shared some photos here, and encourage you to read the press release about the groundbreaking and plans for the new building if you missed it!
