South Hero Breaks Ground on New Library

The South Hero Library kicked off construction of its new home on Route 2 with a well-attended and festive ceremony on Saturday, July 21. We’d like to extend a big thank you to all who made it out, not least importantly, the dozens of members of the community who have enthusiastically thrown their support behind the effort. The new building would not be possible without you!
