About Us

The Pawlet Public Library has been in continuous operation since 1903. It was housed in a small room in the Pawlet Town Office building until 2002 when the library was moved to the historic former grammar school building, which was renovated for this purpose. Since then the library has expanded, making full use of the building’s 2,800 square feet of space. It now boasts over 10,000 items in its collection (books, audio books, DVDs) for adults and children and participates in inter-library loan. It also provides wireless high-speed internet access and online services to download additional eBooks and audio books.
