Winhall Memorial Library to offer outdoor pickup

The Winhall Memorial Library, 2 Lower Taylor Hill Road in Bondville, will begin offering outdoor pickup of books, audiobooks and movies starting Tuesday, May 19, as part of current Covid-19 precautions and safety recommendations.

Because of the changing nature of the crisis, this schedule and information are subject to change or cancellation with little or no notice.

To request material, call 802-297-9741 or email with your order.

Requests can be by title, author or genre. And you should also request a few extra, because your first choices may not be available. Check the library’s online catalog by clicking here.  To find new titles at the library, click here.

You must leave your name and phone number, and you will be contacted about a pickup date. Pickups will take place from noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays. Please be patient; only one staff member is on duty.

Items will be packed in a bag with your name written on it and placed on a table outside the library. Materials not retrieved during the assigned pickup time will be returned into circulation.

Simply drop your returns in the book return slot and pick up your package. All returned items will be put into “quarantine” for 10 days. Before they are shelved, plastic covers will be cleaned with disinfectant.
