Welcome to the South Burlington Community Library

My Account

Did you read Brown Girl Dreaming, winner of the 2014 National Book Award, as part of a South Burlington Community Library 2017 Vermont Reads program?  The Vermont Humanities Council brings award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson to Burlington for a free public talk at Burlington High School,
on Monday, October 23rd at 6 p.m. Woodson will discuss her reading and
writing process and the journey to some of the books she’s published.
Doors will open for the event, located at 52 Institute Road off North Avenue in Burlington, at 5 p.m. Ms. Woodson will sign books at the conclusion of the event.



Yes, we are moving! - FAQs
In order to pack up and get ready to open in our
new location, we regret that we are not able to accept any book
requests including Interlibrary Loan at this time. And for the
brief time we are closed with the move, remember that the
Library is part of the Homecard System. Check our website under
Library Services to find the list of local libraries where your
updated South Burlington resident library card can be used to
check out materials. As always you can download
audiobooks & eBooks through the Overdrive link on our webpage.

If you are a resident and don’t have a library card, have lost your card or your card just needs updating, please visit us now. There will be no charge for replacement cards until we move to our new facility. We will be upgrading to a new checkout system with the move, so library cards or picture IDs will be required.

Unfortunately because of our impending move, we will not be
accepting any book donations until further notice.

Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook so we can keep you informed. Thanks for your understanding and patience during this transition period.
We look forward to seeing you in our new space!!
