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!
The South Hero Library will break ground on a new, 5,500 square foot library at 260 US Rte. 2 at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 21, 2018. All are invited to join in the celebration.
“We are excited about the progress we have made in securing the support of our community,” said Ken Kowalewitz, head of the Library Board of Trustees and the South Hero Library Foundation. “Groundbreaking is possible in large part because of Dr. Edward Worthen, our major benefactor. Now we need to match his generosity with $165,000 to complete the $1.5 million funding to build the Library for our community. You can help put us over the top with your gift and ensure that our community has a well-equipped space. We have decided to begin construction because we are keenly aware of rising construction costs. This celebration of our new Library allows our summer as well as year-round residents to join in this important step in our history.” Continue reading “New Library Groundbreaking”

This is an exciting time for South Hero and your public library! Over $1.3 million has been raised of the $1.5 million goal needed to break ground. As one volunteer said, “With less than $200,000 to go, the goal is so close you can almost smell the dirt on the shovel!” There is a way for you to not only help put that shovel in the ground but also make your money go further.
