Breaking New Ground

Watch the progress on our planned 21,000 square foot expansion and renovation of existing space!

An 18,000-Year-Old Sandbox

Digging is already underway for our semi-underground Deposit Library. Eighteen thousand years aIn the Sandboxgo, retreating glaciers created Glacial Lake Hitchcock: a body of water that extended up the Connecticut River Valley from Middletown, Connecticut to St, Johnsbury, Vermont. Apparently the future home of the Yiddish Book Center lay somewhere on the shoreline, because no matter how deep we dig, all we find is sand. It looks like a beach out there, or a giant sandbox. Forms for the concrete footings are already in place, and we should start seeing the first concrete walls by this time next week.
