Outreach Services

We strive to reach everyone in our member communities.  In addition to digital Library resources that you can access 24/7 with an internet connection, Library volunteers visit child care providers and community gatherings, they stock book exchanges and offer home delivery.  Scroll down for details!

Child Care Providers

The Kellogg-Hubbard Library seeks to promote literacy through its outreach service to child care providers. Volunteers choose and deliver books to 12 area day cares, often leading story time and assisting children in choosing books.

 

Through this service, we teach preliteracy skills and encourage an early love of reading as well as a love of the library. To learn more, or to volunteer, contact Heather Kralik at 223-4665, or, email: khloutreach@kellogghubbard.org

 

Community Gatherings

  • Adamant Annex

The outreach program maintains a library annex at the Adamant Coop. This provides easy library access to residents of East Montpelier and Calais. Patrons may also call the library and request specific materials to be delivered to the Annex.

 

  • Worcester Community Lunch and Old Meeting House Lunch

Kellogg-Hubbard Library brings the library to the towns of East Montpelier and Worcester by providing a limited selection of books for check-out at their weekly, mid-day community meals. Full library services are provided with patrons checking out, returning, and requesting library materials at these locations.

 

Book Exchanges

Outreach maintains book exchanges at the following locations: Red Hen Bakery (Middlesex), the Berlin Mall, (Berlin) the Elm Street Laundromat (Montpelier), and the Post Office Cafe (Worcester).

 

Books exchange materials are give-away books that do not need to come back to the library.  

 

Book Groups

Library Outreach organizes an ongoing book group in Adamant and another at Red Hen in Middlesex.  If you're interested in joining the group, contact Heather Kralik at the Library.

 

Story Time On-the-Road

Every spring and fall we take story time on the road to preschools in each of our member towns.  In addition to a read-aloud, we offer give-away books and craft time!

 

Home Delivery

If you or someone you know is housebound and unable to visit the Library for a period of 2 months or longer; call (802) 223-3338 to find out about home delivery.

 

We will do our best to arrange pickup and delivery, and we're happy to help choose books that you might enjoy reading.  

At this time, home deliveries are available for patrons living in Berlin, Montpelier and Worcester.
