Library

Along with the State’s increased efforts to slow the spread of novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Montgomery Town Library has decided to close its doors. We closed on  Monday, March 16, we will be closed until further notice. 

While we are closed, we encourage patrons to use our digital resources; Overdrive or Libby for E-books and Audio books, and Kanopy for streaming movies (you need your complete barcode).

  • If you have received a message that your materials holds are “ready for pick up” during our closure, please expect to find them on the hold shelf 2-3 days following our re-opening.
  • For those materials currently on the hold shelf, they will remain on the shelf for one week following reopening to give you chance to come in to check them out.
  • Though we are closed, you can still place materials on hold and we will begin fulfilling requests once we re-open to the public.
  • Books previously checked out before our closing will be automatically renewed until May 1st, 2020.

It is important to remember that COVID-19 is not connected to race, ethnicity or nationality. Sharing accurate information from trusted sources is critical to combat misinformation. Find reliable and up-to-date information about the outbreak from the following vetted resources:

https://www.healthvermont.gov/response/infectious-disease/2019-novel-coronavirus : Key information from Vermont on COVID-19 updates, including preparation and response measures.

Center for Disease Control: Updates on the federal response to COVID-19, including travel advisories and national infection numbers.

World Health Organization: Information and guidance regarding the current outbreak of COVID-19, including daily situation reports with international infection numbers.

Stay safe and healthy, we look forward to reopening and making our materials available once again to all our patrons. Please understand that we must take into consideration our community, our volunteers and our staff’s health and safety. We will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
