Program Updates & Information

Important Update!
Due to the increased number of and anticipated holiday rise in COVID cases, the Charlotte Library will close the building to public visitors beginning Monday, November 23. Fortunately, we are able to continue our porch pickup service and have extended the hours for your convenience. The new schedule for picking up materials:

  • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday: 11am to 6pm
  • Tuesday and Thursday: 10am to 5pm
  • Saturday: 10am to 2pm

There are three ways you can reserve library materials:

  1. Places items on hold using your library account
  2. Email us with your requests: info@charlottepubliclibrary.org
  3. Call us at the library with your choices: 425.3864

Library items will be available the same day. Please let us know if you have a specific pickup requirement.

Inter-library loan will continue so please let us know what we can find for you if you don’t see it in our collection. Please use the ILL form or call us with your requests.

Thanks to updated research about touch transmission, we have decided to change the quarantine time to 72 hours. This means we can make in-demand titles available on a speedier schedule and that accounts will clear sooner, too. Library staff will continue to use masks and gloves when handling materials and sanitize all items prior to checkout for porch pickup.

Don’t forget about our online options as well. Libby and Hoopla give you access to a huge variety of books, audiobooks and music and video. Information about these resources are on our Online Resources page.

In addition, we have a wonderful assortment of kits and craft projects waiting for you and hope that you will take advantage of these offerings while you visit the library porch. Check out the family resources page for details.

Whether you’re looking for books or not, we would love to hear from you! Please call or email to let us know how we can help. Library email: info@charlottepubliclibrary.org. Library phone: 802.425.3864.

Be sure to know that the Library Board will closely monitor the situation, following the guidelines set by Governor Scott and the Vermont Department of Health and will promptly update the community with any changes.

Most of all, we send best wishes to stay safe and healthy. We again express our gratitude for your support and patience as we move through this next phase together.
