We are OPEN to the public!!

We are very excited to announce, effective Monday June 15th, you can resume coming into the library!!!

We are limited to 10 people, including staff, in the library at a time.  Come in and we will gladly go into the stacks to grab the material you would like to borrow.  Our hours during this Phase, are Monday thru Friday 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Unfortunately we are not opening the computer stations at this time.  Our Wi-Fi is available outside the library and you do not need a password.  We can print, copy and fax for you.  Please call 802-933-2328, email us at enosburghlibrary@gmail.com or PM us on Facebook!

The newest update we have received from the ACCD states that curbside pickup is still the preferred method of distributing library materials. We will still be offering this service and encourage you to continue to use this method if it has been working for you.

Staff will be wearing masks and gloves and we ask that all patrons wear one also (other than if health reasons prevent the wearing of one).  If you do not have a mask, we have some available.

We are excited to take this next step forward and can not wait to see you!

Library Temporarily Closing:

Dear Enosburgh Public Library Community and Friends,

The Enosburgh Public Library will close at 5:00 p.m. today, Monday March 16th. We hope to reopen on Monday March 30th but will keep everyone updated as things progress. We do not take this decision lightly. We strongly feel this is the best way to help with Social Distancing.

During these two weeks staff will be in the library working 9-5 Monday thru Friday to answer phone calls, email, messages and to assist with Home Delivery to our Enosburgh residents. If you know of some materials you would like to check out, just call the library @ 802-922-2328, email us at enosburghlibrary@gmail.com or FB message us, and we will bag up the items and arrange a time to drop them off to you or you can pick them up outside the library.

Stay tuned daily for links and ideas for activities to do at home

Go to our resource page and check out all the free links you can access with your library card.

Brenda Stanley, Library Director

Library Programs Temporarily Cancelled


Dear Enosburgh Public Library Patrons and Community Members:

Effective immediately and until further notice, all Enosburgh Public Library programs are cancelled.  We have also closed our meeting room to all groups.  We are notifying everyone who has reserved it.

The library Board of Trustees and I made this decision to protect our staff and community.  We know that Social distancing measures such as cancellations can prevent illness in some people and can slow the rate at which people get sick.  According to Dr. Drew Harris, a population health analyst at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, “Mitigation efforts like social distancing help reduce the disease caseload on any given date and keep the healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed.” (See: Flattening the Coronavirus Curve at https://nyti.ms/2U1R4fx)

We will continue to monitor the status and risks of the Coronavirus to help protect the health and safety of our patrons, community and staff.  The library Board of Trustees and I will be in constant contact through email and phone calls as to when we will reinstate programs and use of the meeting room.

In addition to the cancellation of all programs and the closing of the meeting room, below is what we have put into place to date:

  • All door handles throughout the building (including the entrance), computer keyboards & mice, computer chairs and desks, all bathroom fixtures including wall light switches, and all service area desks are sanitized by staff midday and at closing.
  • All items returned to the library are being sanitized and then stored for 72 hours before reshelving. Staff will be wearing disposable gloves while sanitizing materials.
  • If possible, it would be greatly appreciated if material was returned in a closed disposable plastic bag.
  • Hand sanitizer and tissues are available at the computer stations.
  • Hand washing instructions are posted in the library restrooms.
  • Patrons and staff are not allowed in the building if they are ill.
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) fliers about COVID-19 are available at the circulation desk for you to take home.
  • We are communicating daily with the Vermont Department of Libraries and with the Enosburgh Town Offices and will update plans as necessary.

If you can’t come to the library or your limiting your time in public places, we have many online resources available 24/7 with your Enosburgh Public Library card.  You can call the library and we will be glad to help you access these items.

Online Resources include:

  • Your library account. From our webpage, enosburghlibrary.net choose the Search Our Catalog link.
  • eBooks and eAudiobooks are available to Enosburgh Public Library patrons via Overdrive/Libby.
  • Vermont Online Library provides access to Gale databases, enabling library patrons to search magazines, newspapers, books and more.

Enosburgh Public Library does not charge for overdue items.  If you need to renew you can do this online in your account or you can call or message the library.

Home Deliveries/Curbside Pickup:  If you are an Enosburgh resident and are staying home due to a quarantine or concern over exposure, you can still receive library services.  Feel free to call or email us and ask for specific titles or ask us to recommend some books you might enjoy.  We will drop them off at your door without entering or visiting.  You can also let us know if you are in town and we will be glad to bring them out to your car if you park at the curb.  Call 802-922-2328 or email us at enosburghlibrary@gmail.com.
