****Note:  Listen Up Vermont/Overdrive/Libby is moving to a two step authentication login system.  This will provide patrons with more security.

After June 2019 things will look a little different.  Everyone must have a valid library card and then will be asked to choose their library, use their barcode (nine digit account number), and use a personal password.

Patrons will use their barcode number as their log in and use a password.  The password is the same used to check on your koha account from home.   If you are unable to login to Listen Up Vermont/Overdrive/Libby, please call 434.4583 or come by the Library to update your account.  We can renew your card, give you a password and troubleshoot all one phone call!

Please look under the tab “Resources” to see our collection of materials that are not in the koha catalog!
