Children were required to bring these supplies to attend school in Sherburne.

Saturday, Sept. 11 at 10 a.m. — KILLINGTON — Can you imagine sending your child to school with the kit shown in the photograph? This is what was required to attend school in Sherburne in the late 1800s. This is just one of the artifacts on display at the Sherburne Library as part of the Sherburne Historians Collection. Did you know that we also have several diaries of daily life in Vermont including the diary of Civil War soldier Nathan Chauncy Adams? He recorded happenings of all the battles he fought in during the conflict.

If you are interested in Vermont history, and specifically Sherburne and Killington history, please set aside the second Saturday of each month to meet with others who have the same interests and/or knowledge. Sept. 11 at 10 a.m. and continuing every second Saturday of the month, we will meet at the Sherburne Memorial Library to discuss and plan activities around the history of our surrounding area. Come. Enjoy connecting with neighbors and new friends over coffee and Jones’ Donuts!

For more information call the library at 802-422-9765. Everyone is welcome.
