To our library community: To slow the spread of COVID-19, The Vermont Department of Health recommends that everyone should social distance and stay at least six feet away from one another.  Anybody feeling sick, especially with symptoms that include fever, shortness of breath, and cough or aches and pains, should stay home.  As this outbreak unfolds we’ll remain a resource to the community.  

Staying home does not mean you can’t access library services!  Our online offerings include audio and e-books through Overdrive/Libby, classes and certifications through Learning Express, and Vermont Online Library, offering reference material on a huge variety of topics, for all ages. There is Universal Class where people can learn and brush up on a variety of skills through these non-credited courses.  The library staff are available by phone and email to help with any access issues to these online tools.   If you need a library card send us your mailing address and town of residence as well as your phone number and email Click Here.
