Your Library Card

Note: New Library Card Application Suspended Until December 16, 2020

All Vermonters (including second home owners) may sign up for a library card free of charge. As of 31 March 2017 all applicants are required to show a current driver's license or state photo identifcation card. Out of state residents who are visiting the area for short or extended stays may sign up for a card for a $10 annual fee (no charge for children under fourteen). The fee is based on the annual per capita local tax support, prorated for a two-month stay, the average for summer residents. Its purpose is to keep new books on the shelves during the summer, the busiest time of the year. The library is committed to providing as much free access to services as possible, but it is independent and funded by the town; it is not part of a larger system and does not receive any direct funding from country, state or federal sources. We appreciate your understanding and invite your comments.


With your library card, a patron may borrow materials, place reserves on circulating items, and request items through interlibrary loan. Other services, such as reference and use of public access computers, do not require a card. If you forget or lose your card, we can look up your account.
