Another Step in Reopening Our Library!!

The Starksboro Public Library building and bathrooms are still closed due to safety concerns about COVID-19 virus. Our staff has taken the required VOSHA training and will not work at the library if they have any signs of illness.

As of June 22, we are going to offer library services on the front porch most library hours. Please wear a mask and sanitize your hands. One person or family group is allowed on the porch at the same time. Mondays 11-5, Thursdays 11-4 and Saturdays 10-1.

The full library policy for this access follows and the rules are posted at the library. Please read it and obey the rules to make this work for everyone.

Please stay in touch with us on social media:  you can “friend” us at “Starksboro Reader” on Facebook and look for us on Instagram.  If you have questions about ebooks, income tax forms, filling out your Census 2020 form or other library services please email starksboropl@comcast.net or call us at 802-453-3732.  Staff will be checking messages and will return calls.
