Upcoming Events

The Kellogg-Hubbard Library is a community hub for lifelong learning. We are a free non-profit public library serving the central Vermont towns of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, Montpelier, and Worcester.

We offer free access to nearly 70,000 books, movies, audiobooks, and more, plus a range of online resources. Our friendly staff is happy to help you find what you’re looking for.

Everyone is welcome in our building! Come stay awhile, pull up a comfortable chair, and enjoy a book. We offer public computers and printing, restrooms, and free wi-fi access. Our Children’s Library is a great place for a play-date or an after-school hang. We also offer spaces for work and for community groups to hold meetings and events.

We are a learning and cultural center of the community. We offer hundreds of free programs each year for all ages. We host authors and historians, storytimes and craft activities, arts and musical events, and much more. We are especially proud of PoemCity, our annual celebration of National Poetry Month, and our StoryWalk® program, which has spread the joy of reading to children across the world!

  • Live or pay property taxes in one of our supporting towns (Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex, Montpelier or Worcester)
  • Teach or go to a public school in one of our member towns, including VABE (Vermont Adult Basic Education) and CCV (community college of Vermont – Montpelier).

How can I support the library?

Thank you! Supporting the Kellogg-Hubbard Library is a great way to support your community. Each gift of time or financial resources helps us to provide free and equal access to materials, resources, programs, and a welcoming space for all community members to enjoy.

Here are some ways to give:

  • Make a financial contribution: Unlike many other libraries, KHL is a 501c3 non-profit, which means 50% of our funding comes from the generosity of donors like you.
  • Volunteer: The library is always on the lookout for helping hands. We have many opportunities for volunteers to pitch in including shelving and processing materials, helping with outreach, and in our year-round book sale.

How do I contact a librarian?
