I have no affiliation:
- The Library issues Guest Borrower Cards to members of the general public who complete an application form at the Main Desk, provide a personal ID, and pay the annual $40.00 fee. Vermont residents presenting a valid Guest Borrower card may then borrow materials in accordance with library borrowing policies.
