Worthen Society Portraits – Worthen Society Celebration – July 19, 2019
Something amazing is happening in South Hero! Several years ago, Dr. Ed Worthen inspired us by leaving the majority of his estate to start the funding for a new South Hero Library. Now, thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity of so many people in our community, the library is becoming a reality.
In honor of Ed and in recognition that our community is supported by the big-heartedness of individuals, the Library Board of Trustees has named the new facility The Worthen Library. Recently, board members took a tour of the new facility at #260 Route 2 in South Hero. Everyone was wowed by the beauty and brightness of the new building. It will be a wonderful place for Islanders of all ages to hang out.
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!
And for the last fall ever we will be switching back to evening hours August 28th.
Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: 3pm to 8pm
Friday: 3pm to 6pm
Saturday: 9am to 3pm
