A guide that covers the special holdings that make our library unique.


The Iva M. Freeman Library is fortunate to hold a small collection of Glady’s Taber’s most popular books. Dating between 1948—1984, there are a little over twenty titles  covering her advice and stories regarding living a life amongst the changing seasons, raising dogs, and cooking for friends and family.

Glady’s Taber was a New England author who lived and wrote about her 1690 countryside Connecticut farmhouse home named Stillmeadow.
