George Peabody Library in Post Mills is the oldest library in the Federation. Built in 1866, it was the gift of the banker-philanthropist better known for his museums at Harvard, Yale, and Baltimore. As Thetford’s first library housed in the oldest library building in Vermont, it boasted a grand collection of 6,000 volumes and was the largest library for thirty miles within the state.  Today the Peabody Library is known for its small but wonderful collection of books and other library materials and its programming and presentations for all ages.
