Renovation Update:

Thanks to a generous donation from George and Linda Milne and the work of Lajeunesse Construction, our Milne Meeting Room has a beautiful new look! Commercial carpeting and new paint have brightened our space and will preserve the room through high traffic use for years to come. Check our calendar for a list of activities hosted by Aldrich Public Library in the Milne Room, and contact us to host your own public event in this community space in the heart of Barre!
