WHAT’S NEW?

Jamaica Memorial Library Closed

Jamaica Memorial Library will be closed until at least May 1st, 2020. As we get closer to this date we will discuss about reopening or closing further debating on how safe it is for our community during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. We miss our patrons dearly! We wish you good health! Please, stay safe!

Park Passes have arrived!

It’s that time of year again! Summer time!

Thanks to the Vermont Department of Libraries, we’re once again able to offer you passes to Vermont’s State Parks and Historic sites!

Along with a few others! This years Passes include:

Vermont Historic & Park Passes
Echo Museum Pass
Brattleboro Retreat Farm Pass
Brattleboro Museum & Art Center Pass
American Percussion Museum Pass

Passes are available for a 3 day check out and are subjected to a $10 a day late fee and a $50 fine if the pass is lost. Passes are available to anyone with a JML Library Card (it’s easy to sign up for one if you don’t have one!)

The Jamaica Memorial Library is also apart of the Passport program this year! Making it’s comeback after taking a year off, the Passport program is a fun program if you think you’ll be visiting any of Vermont’s libraries this year (we have 183 of them, more libraries per capita than any other US State!) You can fill the book with the stamps of all the libraries you visit! Fun way to adventure this summer!

New Shelving!

Our Children’s Section got a little makeover over the Memorial Day weekend. We got new shelving! Things look beautiful. (view our Before and After pictures below)

A big thank you to Joey Menard and Harry Robinson for installing them for us.

Our picture books also have new categories! We are also almost done with our Library World project. Library World is our automated database system, we’ve acquired in the last few years to input our book collection onto a online database!

Come on in and ask us about our new Children’s section system, how to find books on Library World and any other questions you may have. We’d love to answer them and show you around!
