October 2nd thru 31st: 19th Annual Haunted Library and Reading Raffle!

The Halloween Reading Raffle has a new twist this year!


From October 2nd thru October 31st, read any book and send in a short blurb about the book. You can submit as many blurbs for as many books as you want. We’ll post the blurbs on our Facebook page (the post can remain anonymous on Facebook if you request). Parents can ask their young ones to orally give them a review of a picture book and submit it for their child, too. All ages are welcome!


Email your blurbs or write them on a piece of paper and put them in the Library's book drop box. Be sure to Include your name and phone number! We will put all the names in a hat and pull out three winners on Halloween Night, Oct. 31st! Each winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Galaxy Bookshop funded by the Friends of the Jeudevine Library.


The Haunted Library 

In spite of COVID-19, there will still be happenings and hauntings at the Jeudevine Library this October. The ghosts and ghouls will be haunting outside the library, though! The outside of the library and the windows will all be decorated and treats will be shuttled down a shoot from one of the windows by one of the specters haunting the library. The 19th Annual Haunted Library will begin on Halloween Night from 5 PM until 7PM

Community Connectivity

With so many of us in seclusion for our own safety and the safety of us all, how can we find strength in each other? 

The Vermont Folklife Center believes that a pathway through anxiety, fear and uncertainty lies as much in the act of listening as it does in the act of telling one’s story.

Listening in Place focuses on two responses to the COVID-19 emergency: the creation of a crowd-sourced Sound Archive to document our daily experiences during the pandemic, and a series of online Virtual Story Circles, where Vermonters can gather remotely to listen and share during these truly challenging times.

A home for your books.


Enter what you’re reading or your whole library. It’s an easy, library-quality catalog.


A community of 2,375,000 book lovers. LibraryThing connects you to people who read what you do.
