LIBRARY SERVICES

Meeting Spaces
Our meeting rooms are available for classes, concerts (we have a grand piano!), parties, etc. Reservations may be made up to six months in advance with a completed space use agreement form and $25 security deposit. Rates will be determined by the Library Director or Assistant Director. Payment in full, and receipt of opening/closing procedures must be completed before start of event. The agreement form is available at the library or by clicking on this link.

Inter-Library Loan Program
The Richmond Free Library will borrow materials from other libraries on behalf of Richmond cardholders. Patrons from other towns should initiate inter-library loan requests through their own library. Most loans are now transferred via courier once per week. If you need an item sooner, consider borrowing directly from a Homecard library. RFL will not submit ILL requests for items we own but are in circulation. Patrons may call, email, or stop by to request items via ILL.

Public Access Computers
There are three computers available for accessing the internet, scanning, word processing, and other applications. Color printers linked to the computers. Copies are 20 cents per page. Note: Please review posted computer guidelines before using the computers. Also, the library assumes no responsibility for supervising the computer use of minors.

Copy/Fax Service
Our fax number is 802-434-3223. Faxes may be sent for 50 cents per page or received for 20 cents per page. Photocopies may be printed at 20 cents per page.
