Learn how to Download Free E-Books through your Library

  • Do you own an e-reader but not know how to use it?
  • Would you like a demonstration on how to use Listen Up! Vermont?

We are here to help! You can reserve a tutoring session with a librarian to learn how to download free e-books from the Library.
Bring your own device or see a demonstration. Files are offered in several formats that work for many devices. The South Burlington Community Library has a NOOK and a Kindle available for checkout. Each device has a variety of preloaded titles so that you can see what reading a book on an e-reader is like. You can read our preselected titles, or you may request to have up to 3 additional titles borrowed through your Listen Up! Vermont account.

Library Info

Options For Book Discussion Participants: Have you been missing out on participating in the Library’s book discussion programs because a Large Print edition of the selected title has not been published?  Did you know that you can enlarge the print on an electronic book in order to better view it?  The Library now has a variety of reading options for you to try.  You may borrow an easy to use CD player with an audio book on compact disc (for a few of the book discussion program titles), or borrow an electronic book reading device with most of the book discussion titles already on it.  Also, the “Listen Up Vermont” database is available for downloading audio or e-books to your own reading devices (computer, tablet or smart phone).   The catalog of choices on “Listen Up Vermont” includes several of our book discussion titles, along with many more titles.  Contact Barb Ziemann, Public Services Librarian, to inquire about how to make any of these options work for you…and we hope to see you soon at one of the Library’s book discussion meetings! 

Homebound Residents: Do you know a reader who needs books delivered? South Burlington homebound residents who do not own a car, who cannot drive or who are disabled may request monthly delivery of books on loan. Please call the Library at 652-7080.

Crisis Drills: Please keep in mind when visiting the Library that because we are located in a school, Crisis Drills are held routinely. Any person who is in the building during drills or during evacuation or lockdown situations must adhere to the instructions of Library/School personnel.
