Updated 10/1/21 While the Delta Variant of Covid-19 continues to rise, we would like to avoid crowding in the Children's Library and encourage anyone visiting indoors during our typically busy after-school hours (3:00-4:30) to keep their visit brief. We welcome you to come in, check out materials, ask a question or use the bathroom. For September and October 2021 we are setting up an outdoor area where kids can hang out briefly after school. As the weather changes we will begin to offer this service in the East Montpelier room in the basement of the library.
Please read the points below before sending your child to the Library without an adult.
Please stay home if you have any cold or flu-like symptoms.
Please wear a mask at all times while inside the Library building regardless of your vaccination status.
Children ages 9 and up may use the Library unattended by an adult, in accordance with our Policy on Attended and Unattended Children at the Library, our Rules of Conduct and our Youth Rules of Conduct.
Children are not allowed to use the library phone at this time, but a Youth Services Librarian can make a brief call and leave a message for you.
To reduce crowding, the public computer in the Children's Library will not be available from 3:00 - 5:00 on weekdays.
Thank you for helping keep our staff and patrons as safe as possible!
please note that the Library does not assume responsibility for children of any age who are attended or unattended in the building or on Library grounds.
