The library will also continue to offer online book reservations for pickup at the circulation desk for those who just wish to stop by. Patrons who are not comfortable entering the building can call us at (802) 877-2211 and we will bring your books to you.

We have greatly increased our digital offerings. Please check out our online resources to find out about all the ebooks, audiobooks, databases, and more that you can access with your Bixby Library card.  Look at our events calendar for programming. There are museum and park passes available for three-day checkout.

If you live in Addison, Ferrisburgh, Panton, Vergennes, or Waltham you are eligible for a Bixby Library card. With the return of open hours, please come in and ask at the circulation desk to apply for a card. If you applied for a card while we have been closed please ask at the circulation desk to retrieve your card.


The City of Vergennes regulates the parking lot behind the Bixby Library.  Per the signage posted in the lot, on the Bixby’s Facebook page, and on the Bixby Website: “Overnight Winter Parking: 8 pm – 7 am.  Cars left in the lot after 7 am will be towed at the owners’ expense. Effective December 1 – March 31.  – City of Vergennes.” This allows the library to have the parking lot plowed in time to open to staff, volunteers, and the public without cars in their way.

To retrieve your vehicle if it has been towed from the Bixby Library Parking Lot, contact Green Mountain Towing at 802-363-1326.  Call them to arrange a time to retrieve your vehicle.  Green Mountain Towing is located at 192 Pine Oak Park, Vergennes, VT 05491.  Green Mountain Towing charges $125.00.
