Passport to Vermont Libraries

June 1 - September 1

Get your passport at the Jeudevine! 

Ninety-nine Vermont public and academic libraries will be handing out passports and encouraging patrons to  visit some of Vermont's unique, beautiful and creative libraries, including:

  • The Alice M. Ward Memorial Library in Canaan  (northern-most stagecoach stop on a route from Franklin, NH to Montreal, Canada)
  • The Brookfield Free Public Library (oldest continually operating library in Vermont)
  • The Windsor Public Library (with its active seed lending library)


"One of my favorite things about Vermont is the huge number of different libraries all over the state. Nearly very town has a cool library somewhere in it" says VLA president and second generation librarian Virgil Fuller, director of Chelsea Public Library. "We want to share our love of libraries with all Vermonters."

Local libraries will offer passport stamps and small prizes. Three patrons statewide (adult, young adult &child) will receive Vermont Library Ambassador awards for visiting the most libraries and a copy of the classic book on Vermont's libraries Where the Books Are (a book about the history and architecture of Vermont's public libraries by Pat Belding).

Patrons are encouraged to post pictures and stories on the VLAs Facebook page http://facebook.com/vermontpassport.

More details about the program are available at http://vermontlibraries.org/passport.
