Woodbury Community Library Re-Opening

Dear community,

The Woodbury Community Library is beginning a slow reopening, under the guidance of the Vermont Department of Libraries.

The Library is now open on Wednesdays, 1-5 pm. We ask that all visitors wear masks, use the Library’s hand sanitizer upon entering, and follow social distancing guidelines.

The Library continues to offer curbside pick-up of library materials. A StoryWalk begins in the soccer field; this is a short walk appropriate for young children.

As always, free wifi is available outside the library.

Any questions? Please contact the library at woodburyvermontlibrary@gmail.com or 279-9266.

Curbside Pick-Up of Library Books

Dear community members,

Governor Scott’s Stay Home, Stay Safe order now allows for curbside pickup of library books. While the library will remain closed until the order is altered, the Woodbury Community Library welcomes requests from our catalog.

The library catalog can be accessed here.

When you request a book through the catalog, I’ll return your email, confirm that the book is available, and let you know when you may pick up that request at the library.

At this time, I can only offer what is available in our catalog; the inter-library loan statewide system is currently closed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. This is not the easiest scenario, but the library is committed to doing what we can to help.

Very best,

Brett Stanciu

Woodbury Community Library, Librarian

Woodbury Library Temporarily Closed

The Woodbury Community Library, like libraries around the world, is closed. Public schools in Vermont are tentatively closed until April 6. The library will likely open when the schools reopen.

Although it’s with sadness we shut our doors, we ask everyone to please stay home as much as possible. We look forward to a tremendous community celebration when the coronavirus threat passes by.

I expect to update this site with more information in the coming days. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at woodburyvermontlibrary@gmail.com.

Stay safe, everyone.

Brett Stanciu, Librarian
