GENEALOGY, OBITUARIES, and RESEARCH REQUESTS:
The library responds to telephone or email research requests as staff time allows and/or volunteers are available. Specific dates are needed to accommodate obituary requests. You are welcome to conduct research at the library, but if you need further assistance we may refer you to a genealogist, historical society, Clerk’s office, or the Vermont State Archives and Records Administration.
Library reference staff can provide basic technology instruction using library computers, devices, and the internet. We’re happy to get you started using the web, email, and word processing. We can explain how the library’s downloadable media service works with e-readers and mobile devices. However, library staff cannot help with remembering passwords, using credit cards, or troubleshooting personal electronics. If you need further assistance, you can bring a friend who can help or ask us how to find your answer on the web.
When the library does not own titles that you’re looking for, we can borrow from other libraries. Interlibrary loan is a free service, but increasingly it costs money. Patrons may request up to 3 interlibrary loans at a time. You may be asked to resolve any outstanding fees on your account before checking out an interlibrary loan item, and you will be asked to pay a fee associated with borrowing from a university. We cannot borrow media items.
The library gladly accepts donations of materials from the public. Most items go to the Friends of the Library book sale, which provides the library with important funding for materials and programs. If determined to be a valuable addition to the collection by the librarians, some items are processed and added to the collection. Due to the large volume of items needing processing, we cannot follow up with individuals regarding the addition of your donated items to the collection.
The library collection is periodically weeded of material that is outdated, duplicated, superseded, or rarely used. Using defined criteria, weeding is necessary to maintain a collection of high quality material. Sales of discarded materials are handled by the Friends of the Library, which provides important funding for new materials.
