In June 2015, Middlebury College and the Vermont Land Trust, with the support of Louis Bacon ’79, signed a conservation easement forever protecting Middlebury’s 2,100 acre Bread Loaf campus. A photo exhibit in the Davison Library for the summer celebrates this initiative. Photographs by Brett Simison and stories from people involved in the conservation project illustrate not only the campus’s natural beauty, but also its literary lineage, ecological diversity, and imaginative space. This exhibit helps explain why Bread Loaf is a landmark place, and celebrates its perpetual protection. We invite you to come see these photos, read the stories, and think about why Bread Loaf is important to you.

We hope that everyone in Library and ITS (and their families/partners) can join us for a Summer Picnic on Thursday 8/28 from 3:30-5:30pm at the Hadley Barn on campus. The Hadley Barn is located just past the Kirk Alumni Center on Golf Course Rd.
We’ll provide the grills — please indicate on the sign-up sheet what you would like to bring or help with. Dogs and buns? Salad or brownies? Assorted mayonnaise-based side dishes? We could also use drinks and paper products, and help with set-up and clean-up. Please sign up for whatever suits you best.
Please be in touch with Kellam or Terry with questions. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon and celebrating the end of a great summer!
Please join us for the annual LIS Holiday Party on Tues 12/17 from 4:00-6:00pm at American Flatbread in the Marbleworks. Light refreshments will be provided with a cash bar. Families and partners are welcome to attend. An Outlook invitation will be sent to everyone shortly.
Please note that both libraries will close at 3:30pm that day. We hope to see you soon to celebrate the holidays and the end of a great semester!
