How to Get Your Hands on an Actual Library Book

 

 

 

We are very pleased to once again be able to offer library patrons access to the physical collection. This includes books, audiobooks, magazines, and DVDs. We cannot allow visitors beyond the outer foyer but you will find that this space has been adapted to serve as a safe and convenient place to pick up your item requests. Book bins in the foyer have been labeled alphabetically. Requested items will be bagged, labeled and placed in the bins according to patron’s last name. The door will be left open so visitors need not touch anything except their own bag. Please be mindful of others and wait your turn to enter the space if there is already someone there.

There are three ways to request materials:

  1. Place a hold on whatever you like through your library account at rfl.kohavt.org.  You will need your library barcode number to log in to your account.  Your password is your own last name (capital first letter). Please note that the maximum number of holds allowed per account is five.
  2. Call us at 434-3036. Leave a message if it is after hours.
  3. Email us at rfl@gmavt.net.

Pick up times are as follows:
Mon, Wed & Fri: 10 – 4 pm
Tues & Thurs: 12 – 4 pm
Sat: 12 – 2 pm

* All items can be returned to the outdoor book return bin anytime.
