How Do I?


  • How do I obtain a library card at the South Burlington Community Library?
    Any legal resident of South Burlington over the age of five may obtain a resident library card, which also serves as a homecard, with identification that clearly shows your name and current legal address. Non-residents (outside of the homecard system) and temporary residents may obtain cards valid only at the South Burlington Community Library for a fee of $10 per year. Children 16 years and under must have a parental signature on their registration form. Any South Burlington resident in good standing may use his/her updated library card at the other Chittenden County libraries that are part of the Homecard System.
  • How do I know if the Library has a particular item?
    Our Library catalog can be accessed from in the Library or online. The catalog will show if the book is available or checked out. You may also ask for assistance from a librarian to find books or to show you how to use the online catalog when you visit the Library.
  • How do I renew or place a hold on line? First you must create an account through the Library catalog. Click on Login in the upper right hand corner of your screen. Enter your barcode number from your library card and your first password userpass. You will then be prompted to create a new password. You may renew items no other patrons are waiting for. You may request to be put on a waiting list for an item that is currently checked out. You will be emailed when that item is ready for you. The Library will hold that item for you for three days.
  • How do I sign up for a computer/print/copy?
    Computer signup is self-service. Please remember to bring your library card to use the public computers. You will be asked to scan your library card to log-in. If you are visiting and need computer access, guest logins are available at the Circulation Desk. You can print to the Library printer from Library computers, your mobile device or personal computer. Copies are 15 cents. Copies are 15 cents for a black & white copy and 45 cents for a color copy on the Library copier.
  • How do I donate books to the Library?
    The Library accepts donations of books (see policy) in good condition that can be used in the collection or sold at the Friends of the Library book sales. Until further notice donations should be dropped off at THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY BOOKSHOP - "A Novel Idea" at 1100 Dorset Street.
