Library patrons can access the library's public on-line catalog (OPAC) through the library website. They can search for books and other resources, access their accounts to check when items are due, and request Inter Library Loan services through the library. In order to access their accounts patrons will need to have staff set up a password. Once your password is established, it can be changed remotely by the individual account holder. If you forget your password, you will need to have a staff member assign you a new one.
To augment our own collection we can request materials that we do not have from other Vermont libraries through the Vermont Department of Libraries. Requests may be made in person, by phone or by email.
The library staff is available to assist patrons with reference questions either using the library's reference collection, the internet, or the Vermont Online Library (VOL). The VOL is a set of online databases including general, special interest and children's titles. These databases include citations to articles in thousands of reference sources, including newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias and other reference books. Many articles are also available in full-text. The VOL is an ideal way to find up-to-date and accurate information online without advertisements. AND our patrons can also use these databases from their home computer.
Public computers with high-speed Internet access are available. Popular software programs such as PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and Publisher are on these computers, too. Patrons can also access their email using our high-speed connection.
