Regarding Donations to our Book Sale and Collection

We are very grateful for all of the donations that we get for both our collection and our book sale but, as you know, space is quite an issue here. Because of this, we do have a small guideline to follow. 

When donating to us, please ask yourself the following questions:
  • Is this in good, readable condition (without mold, as it will spread to everything we have)?
  • Would I buy this myself in its current condition?
  • Should this be recycled instead?
If you answered "No" to the first two questions, please bring the books to the Additional Recyclables Collection Center. Their information is as follows:

540 North Main Street
Barre, VT 05641

Hours of collection:
MondayWednesdayFriday12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Every third Saturday9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

$1 per carload, no matter how much or little.

Phone Number:
802-476-1900 (during collection hours)


Additionally, if you have a large quantity of books that you would like to donate to us, we would greatly appreciate that they not be left on our steps and in front of our doors, as it blocks entry into (and out of) the building. This could be very dangerous, especially in the case of a fire. Please give us a call beforehand (472-5948) and/or come during our operating hours (found at the bottom of this newsletter).

Thank you very much for your continued support and understanding!

Wednesday June 27th at 7 PM: Meet Jackson Ellison, Author.

Meet author Jackson Ellis, the 2017 Howard Frank Mosher First Book Award Winner, at Jeudevine Library on Wed. June 27 at 7 PM. The Green Writers Press of Brattleboro, VT gave Mosher award to Ellis’s book Lords of ST Thomas.  The novel is set in the 1930s, during construction of the Hoover Dam, when the U.S. government began buying out the residents of St. Thomas, Nevada. Yet the hardheaded Henry Lord, believing the waters of the newly created Lake Mead would never reach his home, refused to sell or vacate his property. It was a mistake that would cost him dearly.


Ellis will read from the book and share photos and maps of ST Thomas and the region around it. Howard Mosher writes of the book, “Jackson Ellis’s Lords of St. Thomas is the dramatic story of the beleaguered Lord family, forced off their land by the creation of Lake Mead. At the heart of the book are the patriarch Henry Lord, who refuses to leave his doomed home and town, and his young grandson and namesake. Lords of St. Thomas is both a terrific coming-of-age story and an exact and haunting evocation of a bygone time and place. What’s more, it’s a great read. I loved every page.”


Jackson Ellis is an author and editor from Vermont, brought up in the Ludlow/Plymouth area and now living in Burlington. His short fiction has previously appeared in The Vermont Literary Review, Sheepshead Review, The Birmingham Arts Journal, Broken Pencil, East Coast Literary Review, Midwest Literary Magazine, and The Journal of Microliterature.



There will be refreshments and discussion with the author. For more information call the Jeudevine Library at 472-5948.
