With Senator Bernie Sanders’s bid this year, for president of the United States, you might be thinking of visiting his home state of Vermont for your next vacation. I drove to Vermont in 2013, to celebrate the birthday of our nation’s 30th president, Calvin Coolidge, who was born in Plymouth Notch, Vermont, Fourth of July, 1872, the only president of our nation, born on Independence Day. The Berwyn Public Library  has some resources to plan a trip to Vermont. A good place to start could be Reader’s Digest’s, The Most Scenic Drives in America. In addition, the library owns a biography of Calvin Coolidge, Coolidge, by Amity Shlaes. Another book I found useful was Mud Season, by Ellen Stimson. It’s a contemporary read about a woman who moved to Vermont to start a business.
