Safety Protocols for Curbside Pick-Up

Dear patrons, 

We are thrilled to offer curbside pick-up of library materials at the Chittenden Public Library. Once you have received confirmation of your requested materials AND a pick-up time that works for you, please make sure to read the following safety procedures. 

Important Safety Protocols for Curbside Pick-Up at the Chittenden Public Library:

  1. Please arrive at the library within your pick-up time slot. 
  1. Materials for pick-up will be placed in the foyer as you enter the library door. Orders will be bagged and labeled with patrons’ first names and last initials. There is no entrance to the main building nor is use of the bathroom permitted. 
  1. Please adhere to physical distaincing guidelines and keep at least 6 feet apart from others. Only one person at a time is allowed in the foyer. As with your other errands in public, make sure to wear your mask during pick-up. 
  1. If you have questions about your order or the pick-up experience, please email us at and we will help as best we can. Please note that there will not be a librarian available at the time of pick-up.
  1. If you cannot pick up your order, please let us know. You will be given a new time slot for the following Wednesday. 
  1. We are now accepting book returns. Thank you for returning your books to our book drop outside the library door. Please note: if you have several picture books to return, please do so during our “open” hours on Tuesday and Wednesday between 4-6pm. We’ll have a return box in our foyer. (Our little drop tends to get jammed with too many big books). Thank you! 
  1. The Library is adhering to best practices for safely handling materials and curbside practices put forth by the Vermont Department of Libraries, The Agency of Commerce and Community Development, The Institute of Museum and Library Services and The State of Vermont Executive Department. Please let us know if you’d like more information. 

Stay well, take care & happy reading!
