All Vermonters (including second home owners) may sign up for a library card free of charge. As of 31 March 2017 all applicants are required to show a current Vermont driver's license or state photo identification card, and proof of residency. In addition to checking out physical library materials, your card give you access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, and much more. Contact the librarian for more information.
You will need documentation of your Vermont street address. Examples are:
- Current Vermont driver license or state ID
- Mail you’ve received at your current street address in Dover (sorry, a P.O. Box doesn’t meet this qualification).
- A rental agreement or property tax statement
- Proof of business registration in the state of Vermont
With your library card, a patron may borrow materials, place reserves on circulating items, and request items through interlibrary loan. Other services, such as reference and use of public access computers, do not require a card. If you forget or lose your card, we can look up your account.
