From Montpelier to Vergennes, libraries across Vermont have had to improvise and adapt to continue their work in a worldwide health emergency.
Librarians are making arrangements to still make books and other materials available during the coronavirus pandemic.
Access to non-essential services, including the library, arts center and parks, will be restricted starting Wednesday.
This will be the second year in a row the public library will be open for the two holidays.
