Essex Free is now scheduling limited 30-minute appointments for library browsing and computer use. To schedule an appointment, please call the library at (802)879-0313. Please note that if you plan to come with another individual, this person must also register. We continue to recommend curbside pickup as the preferred method of checking out items.
Before your visit, please read the following guidelines:
Do not visit the library if you and/or someone you are caring for are experiencing the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath within the most recent two weeks, cough, chills, or muscle pain.
To check in for your appointment, please ring the doorbell at the front entrance and a staff member will come to assist you. A handicapped entrance is also available at the back of the building.
Masks are required in the building at all times.
Visitors must sanitize hands upon entering the building.
Please keep a safe social distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and others and be mindful of our directional markings.
A public restroom will be available; however, we encourage patrons to use a restroom prior to visiting the library.
Computers will be available, but staff is not able to provide technical assistance at this time.
