Library membership is open to all Williston and St. George residents upon completing a registration form. Please provide identification with current local address. (Post Office Box is not acceptable).
The Chittenden County Homecard enables you to use most other libraries in the county. All patrons in good standing and over the age of 16 are eligible to participate.
Library materials may be borrowed for two weeks and may usually be renewed 3 times unless another patron is waiting for the item. An outside return box is available for after hours returns. DVDs and CDs may not be returned via the dropbox. Please call (802)878-4918, email the library, renew your items online at http://daml.kohavt.org/ or stop by the library to renew your books.
There are no fines for overdue materials, but there is a "conscience box" on the circulation desk for those who wish to donate.
The borrower is responsible for replacement costs of all damaged or lost library materials.
There are a number of ways to put a hold on a book. We would be happy to assist you either at the circulation desk or by phone. A hold may also be placed from our website. To do this you will need your login and password. Please contact the library if you need assistance.

The library will call you when the hold is ready to be picked up. Please note that holds for books that are currently available are only pulled in the morning before 9:00 am. A hold placed after 9:00 am will not be pulled from the shelf until the following day.
Holds must be picked up within 5 business days or they will be re-shelved.
The Homecard Library Program is a county-wide cooperative library system which has served Chittenden County library patrons since 1991. Patrons that have homecard privileges may use their hometown library card to check out materials at participating libraries. Libraries in Cambridge, Jeffersonville, Grand Isle and South Hero also participate in the program.
Patrons with homecard privileges must be in good standing to borrow from other libraries and present an active library card with a stamp signifying that they are in the homecard program. All materials borrowed from other libraries must be returned to the lending library.
If you are over 16 years of age and have a Dorothy Alling Library account in good standing then you may have HomeCard privileges.
We are located just off Williston Road (Route 2) in the Village of Williston. The Library has handicapped parking spaces and is a wheelchair accessible building. There is additional parking behind the Old Brick Church.
