Our last day at the mall location is Friday, June 11.
We will be closed from June 12th until we move to the new library at 180 Market Street July 19th. In order to pack up and get ready to open in the new location, we regret that we are not able to accept any book requests including ILL during these dates and we will not be offering Curbside Pickup.
No renewals after June 11 but also no late fines. The Bookdrop will be locked on June 11 at 5 pm so please hold on to any returns until we are at 180 Market Street.
Librarians will not be available by phone or email starting June 11 at 5 pm until the move to the new library in July.
For the time we are closed with the move, remember that the Library is part of the Homecard System. Check here to find the list of local libraries where your South Burlington resident library card can be used to check out materials. Before you go to a Homecard library, check your physical library card expiration date.
As always you can download audiobooks & eBooks through Overdrive. If you have not borrowed through Overdrive before, check here to get started and view our login tips below. Unfortunately there will not be any staff assistance available either by phone or email after June 11. So please be sure you can log in successfully before that date.
Stay tuned for your invitation to the ribbon cutting and Open House in late July.
Save the date: Sunday, June 13 we will kick off the move with a Bag 'n Wagon Parade at 10 am.
Thanks for your understanding and patience during this transition period. We look forward to seeing you in our beautiful new space!!
eBooks & Audiobooks
eBooks and Audiobooks are available to South Burlington residents using the Libby and Overdrive Apps as well through an internet browser. You can find more information on how to access our eBook and Audiobook collection here. You will need your exact South Burlington library card number and catalog account password.
Login Tips for Overdrive/Libby
- The two systems, library catalog and Overdrive/Libby, are synced and Overdrive/Libby now requires a PIN. Have you set up an account to log into the South Burlington library catalog to renew library items etc.? If so the password used there would be the PIN for Overdrive/Libby.
- If not, go to https://sburl.agverso.com/home?cid=sburl&lid=sburl
- Log in with your library barcode number and userpass as password. You will then be prompted to create a personal password.
- Be sure to enter library card barcode exactly (case sensitive)
- If the letter O does not work perhaps it is the number 0 – What might look like the number 8 could be the letter B…
- Libby/Overdrive does not recognize anything other than a number or a letter at the end of library barcode.
- You will need to contact the Library by June 11 or after our move to the new location to obtain a new barcode.
- If your card has expired you will not be able to access Libby/Overdrive between June 12 and our reopening.
- Staff will not be available again for assistance until after we open at our new location.
- Please check your accessibility before we close our location at the Mall.
Please read the following documents if you are interested in how we are handling safety.
Please read our letter regarding the Library closure on March 17, 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus.
