Built in 1912, the Bixby Memorial Library in Vergennes also serves as a museum of local history. While many small libraries used to include a museum, the cost of curating and maintaining a collection proved cost prohibitive for most. Now, the Bixby is one of the last in the state that still preserves local and regional artifacts in this way. Head librarian and de facto curator Rachel Plant gives us a tour of the museum's eclectic collection.
