Explore Vermont's libraries with The Vermont Library Association's Passport to Vermont Libraries.

This summer from June first to September first, over one hundred Vermont public and academic libraries will be handing out passports in the second annual Passport to Vermont Libraries program, encouraging patrons to visit some of Vermont's unique, beautiful and creative libraries:

- Vermont's first library building in Thetford Vermont with its 1500 original books from when it opened in 1866
- The Richmond Free Library inside a former Unitarian church
- The Haskell Free Library and Opera House in Derby Line with two postal codes and two phone numbers, one in the US and one in Canada

"So many towns have interesting libraries that reflect the unique nature of their communities" says VLA past president and second generation librarian Virgil Fuller, director of Chelsea Public Library. "As librarians, we want to share our love of libraries with all Vermonters."

Local libraries will offer passport stamps and small prizes. Three patrons statewide (adult, young adult, child) will receive Vermont Library Ambassador awards for visiting the most libraries. New this year is a special award for the librarian who visits the most Vermont libraries.

Patrons are encouraged to post pictures and stories on the VLAs facebook page
