The South Burlington Public Library is back open for business.
On Monday, doors unlocked for in-person service. Curbside pickup is still available, but staff look forward to greeting patrons, too, as they’ve been missed.
Hours will be – Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.–3 p.m. and Tuesday and Wednesday 2-6 p.m.
The library will stay at its current location at the University Mall through June 11, with plans to move into its new space, at 180 Market St., this July.
A “bag ‘n wagon” parade at 10 a.m. on June 13 will give community members a chance to offer hands-on help, wheeling books to their new home.

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast.

When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life — until the unthinkable happens.
