Thank you for sharing your summer with us!



The Library currently has one-day family passes for Shelburne Farms, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, Vermont State Historic Sites,
Birds of Vermont Museum
and Vermont's History Museum.
Please check the Library catalog for lending policies for each location.
The Library also has a pass for the Echo Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. This pass provides reduced admission prices for parties of up to four people
and a pass for Shelburne Museum for half-price admission for two adults and accompanying children 17 and under. A pass for free admittance for two adults for Elder Education Enrichment lectures is also available. The Vermont State Department of Libraries and the Department of Forests, Parks, & Recreation have co-sponsored the donation of a free State Parks Day Pass to every library in Vermont. The library pass admits one vehicle holding up to eight people to a Vermont State Park Day Area for one day.
These one-day passes may be used by South Burlington
residents with a South Burlington library card.
Call the Library at 652-7080 to reserve a pass for a specific date. The pass may be picked up at the Circulation desk in the morning and must be returned at the end of the day so others may enjoy the use of the pass. Please check individual websites or call venue for information on opening & closing dates & times.
Passes are checked out for one day only. There is a $5 late fee per day if not returned by due date and a $50 replacement fee if lost.
