The Sherburne Library hosts a special event each year on the third Saturday in September: The Vermont Fairy Tale Festival was put together to showcase our Vermont Public Libraries and all they do for their communities. Each library that participates will sponsor a booth about a specific Fairy Tale. In that booth, they can tell the story, do puppet shows, music, and/or have a craft for families to make and take home. We also have vendors selling fairy tale type wares and we will be adding food vendors to this year’s line-up. The festival is free and open to the public from 10-4 with the donation of a non-perishable item for either the food bank or the humane society. So, dress up as your favorite fairy tale character and bring the whole family to the Vermont Fairy Tale Festival!
Our Vikings are back again this year with another encampment, training and activities. While this is also a family friendly event, please note that the live steel sword fighting is real and may not be suitable for smaller children. For more information about either of these activities, you can call the library at 422-9765 or follow us on Facebook at Vermont Fairy Tale Festival and Vermont Viking Invasion for the latest news.
