This summer from June 1 to Sept. 1, 95 Vermont public and academic libraries will be handing out passports and encouraging patrons to visit some of Vermont’s unique, beautiful and creative libraries.
“One of my favorite things about Vermont is the huge number of different libraries all over the state. Nearly very town has a cool library somewhere in it,” said VLA president and second generation librarian Virgil Fuller, director of Chelsea Public Library. “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, and child) will receive Vermont Library Ambassador awards for visiting the most libraries and a copy of the classic book on Vermont’s libraries “Where the Books Are,” about the history and architecture of Vermont’s public libraries by Pat Belding.
