• Take a pass

    Again this year, the library is happy to offer passes for a variety of attractions as well as the state parks. State park passes are day passes that allow entrance for up to eight people in one vehicle.
    Other passes we have available include Billings Farm & Museum, ECHO, Hildene, Vermont Historic Sites, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne Museum, Vermont History Center and VINS.
    The passes are extremely popular, so be sure to book ahead. Just call 773-1860 for assistance.

  • Tax forms available …

    Most federal tax forms and booklets have arrived. The state is not sending out stacks of tax forms to libraries, town halls and post offices this year. But that doesn’t stop us from sending out stacks of information about how to get your hands on the forms. See the page at http://rutlandfree.org/tax-forms/
