Re-Opening of the Library Building: Phase 2 starts July 15

The Charlotte Library Board of Trustees and Staff are excited to announce the re-opening of the library building on Wednesday, July 15. Because of ongoing caution and concern for community welfare, this phase is necessarily restricted but offers the first step in a gradual opening of the library to full service.

  • Library Hours: Monday through Thursday, 10 am to 3 pm
    • 10 to 11 am: reserved for at-risk individuals
    • 12 to 1 pm: library closed for cleaning & sanitizing
  • All patrons must wear masks and sanitize hands when entering building
  • Patrons must be 16 or older to enter the building in the first two weeks of Phase 2

Please see the announcement for the list of all the measures and regulations for Phase 2.

Library staff will be on hand to assist with book checkout and location via computer. Staff will be masked at all times and wear gloves when handling materials for sanitizing prior to and during checkout.

We look forward to seeing you at the library at long last and to sharing our wonderful new building with the rest of the community, even in such a limited first start. We hope to move to subsequent phases as long as the COVID-19 recovery continues here in Vermont. This opening comes with the caveat that library hours and access could change at any time as the situation in Vermont warrants. Check back here for the latest updates and information.
