Now Showing at Fadear Park in Barriere:

The Mitten by Jan Brett

Woodland animals find a lost mitten in the woods and decide to crawl in. First, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse but will they all fit?

Full of visual delights and details, The Mitten brings the animals to life with warmth and humor.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.

TNRL’s StoryWalk® was made possible by:


Shyanne Johnson, Barriere TIMBER MART, Scott Kershaw, Ward Stamer, Pat Appel and Jay Deyman.


In 1974, the Barriere Library became the second library to join the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library. A 2,500 square foot building was opened in December of 1975. The current library was built in 2004.
