Check out the New Arrivals page for a listing of brand new books, DVDs, and audio books for adults and kids.
We are pleased to offer this service to all our card-holders at no cost. You may now download audiobooks and e-books (yes, e-books! ) They are even easier to download than the audios. Just go to Listen up Vermont and see how easy it is to burn a book to CD, download to an MP3 player, or listen straight through your computer.
Instructions are on the website: you will likely need to download the OverDrive Media Console or Adobe Digital Editions on to your computer in order to download the files. Both are free software. If you are a little mystified by this process, please stop by the library and Abby will help you out on one of our computers.
CONTRIBUTE TO THE LIBRARY ONLINE
If you donate your used clothing to the Neat Repeats store in Middlebury in the library’s name, the proceeds allow us to improve our audio book collection.
If you shop Amazon, start your visit at Amazon Smile. You can select the Friends of the Platt Incorporated as your charity and a portion of your purchase will go towards funding the library.
ABOUT THE LIBRARY
The Platt Memorial Library is over 100 years old, but we are a very active portal to the world. The past five years have seen the programs and materials offered by the Platt Memorial Library expand greatly. Registered users, patron visits, and circulation numbers have all increased. The library’s location on the town green is an asset with the library being a focal point of the community. Our new addition to the existing building allows us to have room for our increased programs, materials, and visitors! When you are finished visiting our web site, we would love for you to come visit us at the library. 279 Main Street, Shoreham, VT 05770
