Hello all!

Just a note to let you know that we are thinking of you and to keep you abreast of any COVID developments.

The Vermont Department of Libraries' latest note on the reopening of libraries states: "Each Vermont public library has the power to make decisions on if and how to provide services under the advisement of the library board and stakeholders such as the municipality and community leaders (if applicable). Libraries should weigh the potential vulnerability of community members, staff, and participating volunteers when deciding how to proceed."

The Institute of Museum and Library Services has been performing studies on the possibility of spread of COVID through contamination of library materials. The latest test shows that it is highly advisable to quarantine items for at least 72 hours. We are currently following a stringent process of wiping each returned item down with alcohol and then quarantining items for the recommended amount. Thus, allowing the public to enter the building and allow "browsing" of the library materials, would make it physically impossible to sanitize every item that is potentially contaminated.

The Library Board is aware of the potential risk to the public and staff and has made the decision to keep the library closed to the public at this time. The Board will be meeting in a few weeks to discuss the continued risks of COVID and any possible reopening plans. We support and agree with the decisions of the Board, yet are saddened that we are still unable to open the library to the public.

As a reminder, we are offering curbside service (see our website, call or email us), e-resources (see our website), and free wi-fi (on the Library porch and grounds).

There is a lot of confusion and angst about what is the best way to handle the COVID situation. Library leaders are continuing to discuss on many different platforms the best way to proceed. Currently, most libraries are providing curbside and will do so for the foreseeable future. Very few libraries have opened to the public, and they are all experiencing logistical concerns and staff anxiety.

Meanwhile, the Library staff and I are busy working on adding items to the collection, working on planned in-house projects, and filling curbside requests. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns, [email protected] or 253-6145. Our current library hours are Monday through Friday, 9 to 5.

Thank you for your patience in this unusual time. Stay well!


Cindy Weber, SFL Director
