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. To make an appointment for a one-hour session, please contact Barbara Ziemann, Public Service Librarian, at 652-7080. You may also email Barbara at email@example.com. Please bring your South Burlington Community Library card with you to your appointment.
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 these times must adhere to the commands in an evacuation or a lockdown situation.
It is necessary to follow the instructions
of Library/School personnel.
NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK
Lives change @ your library: celebrate National Library Week April 13-19
This week, the South Burlington Community Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating National Library Week.
Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
The South Burlington Community Library serves South Burlington by also providing children’s and adult programs, public access computers, access to subscription data bases and so much more.
Join in the fun! Fill in a Speech Bubble when you visit the Library this week or post on Facebook and tell the story of how the Library has changed your life.
What does your Library mean to you?

New 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.
