Library News


Poultney Public Library has put up a holiday Story Walk ™ in Downtown Poultney! The story starts on the library front door, continues in the windows and doors of downtown businesses and the Town Office, and concludes on the library side door.
Check out the list of Story Walk ™ participants to make sure you don’t miss a page! When you complete your walk, stop by the library (Mon/Tue/Thur/Fri 10-2 or Wed 12-7) and knock on the door to receive a prize.
Thank you to all of our great local businesses!


Are you having your book sale?

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, our 2020 Book Sale and Youth Flea Market has been cancelled.

Can I donate books for book sale?

We are not able to take donations of books and movies for our sale at this time. All library returns are going through a quarantine and cleaning process. Attempting to add donations to the process would be more than we have space or man hours to handle.

Are you having summer reading program?

Yes, we will definitely have a summer reading program! It will be designed so that it can be completed with few or no library visits if necessary. Our summer reading program will begin Monday, July 6. More details will be coming soon.

Will you be having programs/events/game night?

All in person programs and events have been cancelled until further notice. We will be holding some virtual programs online this summer.

Poultney Public Library Clarification on “Library Expansion Phase II” Fundraising

            Recently we have received multiple questions about a local fundraiser. As the fundraiser in question is called “Library Expansion Phase II”, many people assume it is intended as a follow up to the recent expansion and renovation at the Poultney Public Library. However this project is not related to the Poultney Public Library, but is instead an initiative of the Welsh American Genealogical Society (WAGS).

            For more information about WAGS please visit their website at

            If you wish to support the Poultney Public Library, donations are always accepted and may be earmarked for a specific purpose (eg. Children’s Books, Building Improvements, DVDs, Programs, etc.).
