Two of our Haston Library patrons
John and Marian Pelton

Traveled all over Vermont this summer visiting libraries that were participating in the Vermont Library Association Passport project. The goal was to visit as many Vermont libraries as possible, and to have your passport stamped at each library visited. The Peltons traveled all over the state and received stamps from 98 libraries, filling three passports. They said it was a great way to see Vermont, and enjoyed finding and visiting all the libraries.

Congratulations to the Peltons on this major accomplishment!

Merry Christmas
