  • Bennington Public Library has a long-time tradition of giving homemade book bags to children when they first sign up for a library card.
  • These bags have been provided by various volunteers in the Bennington community.
  • For those who would like to help ensure this tradition continues, we have provided the direction and pattern in the link above for you to download.
  • Donations of fabric are also appreciated. Thank you!
