Update April 7, 2020
The Wardsboro Public Library will continue to be closed until further notice due to the Coronavirus.
After careful consideration, the Board of Library Trustees has made this decision because it is our responsibility and our concern for the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and library patrons. We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause all of our library patrons and the community. We will re-open as soon as the governor's advice allows and when we feel it is safe to do so.
Our librarian, Jill, is working from home and will continue to answer questions by email, provide access to on-line library services and suggest available resources on the Internet. You can stay connected and enjoy all that the library can offer during this challenging time by checking our website regularly: wardsboropubliclibrary.org, following us on Facebook, or emailing email@example.com for the latest information and resources.
Please keep safe, follow the safety guidelines established by the CDC and the VT governor and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Wardsboro Public Library when we open again.
