We are practicing strict sanitation of surfaces, doorknobs and books.

- Please sanitize your hands before entering the building and upon exiting.
- Please leave on the floor any books you took off the shelf but did not check out. Staff will sanitize and reshelve the books.

- Please stay home if you have a fever, symptoms of a respiratory illness or have been exposed to anyone who is ill. We will gladly do curbside checkout for you.
To reserve items for curbside pick up:
- Go to our online catalog at https://bristol.kohavt.org/
- Sign into your account. If you don’t know your sign in information email us at email@example.com and we will send it. We also will be accepting phone call reserves for those of you who don’t use the internet at 453-2366.
- When you find what you want, click on the holds button, not the add to cart button.
- We will pull the items for you and check them out. They will be available on a shelf outside our side door. Please come as soon as you can to get the items because they are somewhat exposed to the weather—books don’t like rain!
- YOU MAY NOW RETURN BOOKS! Please place books in the grey return boxes, one on the front porch and one on the back. We will quarantine the books for 1 week before we check them back into the circulation system.
If you want to see new items look on our website under online resources, new at the library. We are happy to be back!
