Just before the pandemic Ross and Sawyer Connelly donated a carboy jar full of pennies to the Jeudevine Library to hold a guessing contest to see who could come closest to guessing the number of pennies in the jar. Then the pandemic came, the library was closed, and the contest was put on hold. Ross Connelly, former owner of the Hardwick Gazette and his late wife, Susan Jarzyna, started putting pennies in the jar when they came to Hardwick in 1986. What a great gift to the library!

Jeudevine Expansion Garden Tour!
Saturday, July 16th from 10am - 3pm
Mark your calendars!
Five gorgeous gardens will open to visitors for the first Jeudevine Library Garden Tour. The tour includes three gardens in Hardwick, one garden in Greensboro, and one garden in Craftsbury.
Beginning May 28th during the Spring Festival: Purchase your admission buttons ahead of time for $25 by cash or check at the Whistle Emporium, Birdsong Beer & Wine, or the library itself.
If you’d prefer to purchase online, slots will be available through Paypal for $30 (due to a $5 service and processing fee) with buttons to be picked up on the day of the tour. Be sure to choose General Donation and type "Garden Tour" into the notes field.
After stopping at the library to obtain your map (and a button if needed), participants can visit as many or as few of the gardens as desired throughout the day. Children under 15 are free with an adult and we encourage everyone to attend! If the cost is a factor, please let us know and we can accommodate.
All proceeds go toward the Furniture Fund for the Jeudevine Expansion Project.
